Figure 2: Respondents' knowledge of the best way to detect hypertension: Figure 2 shows that the most effective way of detecting hypertension according to the respondent was measurement of blood pressure (44.44%) followed by excessive headache (23.41%), feeling of internal heat (15.06%), then feeling of dizziness. This knowledge was significantly associated with level of education (P = 0.001, χ2 = 33.66)
