Understanding factors that influence effective treatment is essential toward tackling hypertension in Armenia and beyond. This study retrospectively reviewed 144 patients ≥ 18 years old with blood pressure (BP) readings ≥ 130/80 who participated in the CUSOM/CPHS mobile clinics in Armenia. The primary objective was to assess patient awareness regarding hypertension diagnosis and current use of antihypertensive medications. Although 84.7% acknowledged they had high BP, only 73.6% reported taking an anti-hypertensive medication. The subset of Armenian patients studied were aware of their high BP. However, these findings identify the need for comprehensive education regarding the importance of medication adherence.
