As Nigeria continues its quest to become one of the twenty leading economies by 2020, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has revealed that one out of every three adults worldwide has high blood pressure, a development that has become a public health issue and threatens the nation’s economy.
While this disease condition has assumed an epidemic dimension, there is an enormous financial burden associated with the disease as treatment of hypertension requires an investment over many years to ensure disease-free years among those affected.

Nigerians have been advised to reduce belly fats to avoid health complications that come as a result of this.
The advise was given by a renowned Gynaecologist, Dr Fred Achem, on Tuesday during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
Achem, who works with the Feropod Hospital, Abuja said that too much intake of fats, carbohydrates and animal protein would reduce the functions of the vital organs in the body.

Worsening health indices threaten Nigeria from meeting up with the Millennium Development Goal (MDG Goals 4 and 5) target of reducing infant mortality and improving maternal health as the 2015 target approaches.
Nigeria has been ranked as one of the worst countries for mothers and children to live in, according to ‘State of the World’s Mothers 2014’ annual mothers’ Index.
