                                                                                                              ABSTRACT

Hypertension is a common, important and major global public health problem. It is the leading cause of mortality and the third largest cause of disability worldwide. In view of this background, this study has empirically examined the knowledge of hypertension among the staff of the Kaduna State University. To address the problem of study, four research questions were raised. The researcher adopted a survey research design. A total of one hundred and three (103) respondents comprised the target of the study. Questionnaire was the instrument used for data collection. The Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS), frequency tables and percentages (%) were employed in the data analysis. The result showed that excess smoking, excess alcohol intakes, stress, high blood glucose, physical inactivity and too much salt and too little potassium intake are causes and risk factors attributed to hypertension. Hypertension can cause stroke, chronic kidney disease, heart attack/heart failure, cardiovascular diseases and coronary artery disease. Most respondents are aware of their hypertension status and undertake medical checkup of their blood pressure on monthly basis. It is recommended that avoidance of stress, engaging in dietary regulations, regular medical checkup, adoption of healthy life style, maintaining a healthy body weight, avoid smoking, limiting alcohol intake, and increased physical activity/regular exercises are preventive measure that could be adopted against hypertension
