This study aimed at providing the prevalence of pre-HTN, diagnosed and undiagnosed HTN, along with its control and associated factors in an adult population. 5,900 participants aged 15-75 years took part in the study. HTN was verified by examination, self-reported history or using anti-hypertensive drug(s). Pre-hypertension and hypertension were defined as 120-139/80-89 mmHg and >140/>90 mmHg for systolic/diastolic BP, respectively.
