The Singapore Hypertension Society (SHS)
was founded by a group of physicians from various disciplines with
the common philosophy that since hypertension has many facets to its
causation, pathogenesis, and clinical consequences, a
multidisciplinary approach will achieve the most success for the
goal of managing the disorder.
The SHS plays an important role in organising clinical meetings,
seminars and conventions to advance the practice of hypertension
management. The Society advocates research and publication of
medical and scientific works on hypertension, as well as promoting
regional and international cooperation in the study of hypertension.
The SHS is affiliated to the Asian Pacific Society of Hypertension,
having been formally inaugurated on 23 February 2002 at the
Pan-Pacific Hotel in Singapore. SHS hosted the 3rd Asian Pacific
Congress of Hypertension on 3-7 April 2004. The Society works
closely with, and has the strong support of the Singapore Heart
Foundation, the Singapore Cardiac Society, and the Singapore Society
With support from both medical and paramedical professionals,
biomedical scientists, and the Government, the SHS will actively
implement programmes to educate the community on the different
aspects of hypertension, aiming to detect the condition early so as
to minimise its complications.
