Hypertension is considered one of the leading factors of death worldwide. Some statistics state that about 16% of Filipinos 20 yearsold and above have hypertension. Untreated, hypertension could lead to serious illnesses like stroke, heart failure, aneurysm, renal failure and so much more.
 Based on this staggering numbers,Senior Board Member Ruth Mariano-Hernandez, together with Laguna Chest Center Chief Dr. Ramon B. Carlos, MGM, visualized and created the RH-Community Hypertensive Clinic to address the increasing prevalence of the disease.
The launching of the clinic was held in Barangay Sampiruhan, Calamba City, Laguna on January 23, 2018. The said event was a success, also because of the support and cooperation of the local government of said barangay.
