For the past 50 years, the implementation of therapeutic advances to the largest number of people has made it possible to have an exemplary reduction in cardiovascular mortality, contributing to extension of life expectancy observed in France. Nevertheless, such gains are fragile, and largely dependent on the quality of blood pressure control. The relative stagnation of blood pressure control in France for the last 5 years is potentially one of its early markers. The French League against Hypertension and the French Society of Hypertension, with the support of the French Ministry of Health, have decided to combine their efforts to provide a new impetus to management of this disease and to make blood pressure control a priority. An ambitious improvement of the percentage of controlled hypertensive patients from 50% to 70% in 2015 is targeted. To achieve this goal, a simplified decisional algorithm is proposed: seven key points dedicated to general practice are emphasized.
