Welcome letter

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is a pleasure to invite you to the 30th Congress of the International Society of Hypertension (ISH2024). Our Congress returns to Latin America and this time it will be in the charming and emblematic city of Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, full of history and eclectic cuisine. One of the great tourist destinations in Latin America.

We look forward to all the delegates from around the world, dedicated to research, diagnose and treat high blood pressure. Our ISH2024 Congress will be focused on improving the control of hypertension worldwide, with four main themes:

1 — Hypertension care with multidisciplinary teams and standardized processes, we will also explore the application of telemedicine and the new remote patient monitoring techniques.

2 — Predictive and analytical models of response to non-pharmacological and pharmacological therapies.

3 — Evaluation and treatment of special populations: elderly, ethnic groups, minorities, frail and multi-morbid patients.

4 — Applied research and translational medicine: molecular and pathophysiological mechanisms, genetic factors and hypertension in animal models.

We will have several inter-society events which will be a great opportunity to interact and make connections with eminent experts and leaders of arterial hypertension from around the world. In addition, the new paradigm of precision medicine in hypertension will be explored in a multidisciplinary fashion. Finally, attractive awards will be presented to participants with outstanding research work.

Our event will be a great occasion to meet again to strengthen the initiatives of the ISH globally and regionally, to create lasting ties to improve the control of hypertension worldwide.

We will be waiting for you in Cartagena, Colombia on September 19 to 22, 2024.
