More than 160 million mainland Chinese suffer from high blood pressure, according to the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
Three million people are added to the list each year, according to a recent survey on public nutrition and health by the center's health education institute.
Brain stroke patients are estimated to be more than six million.
Experts said that heart and cerebrovascular diseases such as hypertension and stroke often lead to disability and death.
Health education is the most cost-effective way of preventing and treating this type of disease, they said.
The institute and the Ministry of Health are working with the Boston Scientific Corporation to carry out health education programs in China.
