Who We Are
We are a coalition that prioritizes eliminating disparities in hypertension control through dialogue, partnership, evidence and innovation.
The National Hypertension Control Roundtable (NHCR) is a group of public, private, and volunteer organizations unified to eliminate disparities in hypertension control and improve control rates in the U.S.
We bring together employers, providers, health insurers, public health organizations, and other key stakeholders to develop a comprehensive approach to improving hypertension control rates and reducing disparities. These stakeholders include:
- Federal government
- State and local government
- Healthcare practices and systems
- Professional organizations and societies
- Academic institutions
- Employers and health plan purchasers
- Health plans
- Community organizations and foundations

The expertise from our members drives our mission through creating new partnerships, sharing best practices, and uplifting national efforts. The NHCR is supported by the CDC Foundation in partnership with the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors.
