Hypertension has been acknowledged as one of the greatest and established risk factors for cardiovascular diseases. In this special article, strategies for the prevention and management of hypertension throughout human's life were discussed. Studies showing the relationship of birth weight and height increase in childhood to future blood pressure suggest that both environments during pregnancy and during childhood and adolescence are important to prevent hypertension. The promotion of a DASH (Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension) dietary pattern, rich in fruits and vegetables, is important not only for treatment of high blood pressure but also for long-term prevention of blood pressure rise as well. Blood pressure measured in young adulthood can effectively predict long-term risks of cardiovascular and all-cause mortality, so population-wide primary prevention of high blood pressure for young adults is important. Recent large scale cohort studies confirmed that detection and evaluation of hypertension based mainly on systolic blood pressure remains the most practical and easy approach in the general population for young adult, middle-aged, and older men and women. Researchers in Asia are desired to establish high-quality epidemiologic evidences for Asian for the prevention and management of hypertension.
