  1. For definitions and sources, see Additional file 2: Appendix 2
  2. aHypertension was defined by a blood pressure ≥ 140/90 mm Hg or by being on hypertensive medication
  3. bNeither recognition nor initiation of hypertension treatment implies that the patient is adequately controlled (i.e., below 140/90 mm Hg). The number of people without adequately controlled hypertension among those recognized/treated varies from country to country and usually exceeds the number of people with adequate control
