Sustained high blood pressure is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in our society. The usefulness of educational intervention for improving the blood pressure status of market women was assessed in this interventional community based study. The socio-demographic data, blood pressure, body mass index (BMI) and awareness of the blood pressure status of the subjects were documented. Counseling of the respondents on hypertension, risk factors, drug compliance and life style… 
Effect of nutritional counseling on body mass index of adult hypertensive attending general outpatient clinic, federal medical center, Ido-Ekiti South-Western Nigeria

Blood pressure patterns in relation to geographic area of residence: a cross-sectional study of adolescents in Kogi state, Nigeria
TLDR
Findings underscore the need for efforts to be made towards addressing adolescent blood pressure elevation (in both urban and non-urban areas) as they are a reflection of adult morbidity and mortality from hypertension and the associated disorders.
Take Control of Your Blood Pressure (TCYB) study: a multifactorial tailored behavioral and educational intervention for achieving blood pressure control.
TLDR
Evaluating a randomized controlled trial involving a tailored behavioral intervention conducted to improve blood pressure control and finding the intervention is easily implemented and is designed to enhance adherence with prescribed hypertension regimen is important.
National Study of Women’s Awareness, Preventive Action, and Barriers to Cardiovascular Health
