[Correspondence] Prevalence and control of hypertension – Authors’ reply

We appreciate the Correspondence by Pascal Bovet and Arnaud Chiolero about our study of the prevalence, awareness, treatment, and control of hypertension in China.1 They suggest that for all studies reporting the prevalence of uncontrolled hypertension, and the resources needed to address the burden, authors should explicitly state whether referring to a risk factor approach, a cardiovascular risk approach, or a mix of both so as to help interpret the results and guide policy.As stated in the Methods section of our Article, we clearly defined controlled and treated hypertension.
