Brava: “The great majority of the people with hypertension do not adhere to treatments” – physician

Nova Sintra, May 20 (Inforpress) – The doctor from the Health Department of Brava Paloma Fernandes assured that the island has a lot of hypertensive patients, but most of them “do not adhere” to the treatments available in the health structure.

The Health Department has promoted a hypertension campaign involving all employees in Furna and, according to the doctor, the lack of adherence to treatment makes life difficult for patients over time, leading to cases of stroke and other conditions.

“The idea is to try to change this reality, encouraging and raising awareness among people, in order to adhere to treatment”, said the same source.

Thus, the Health Department left its physical space and went to the town of Furna, an action that was included in the May programming, as the month of the heart.
