This article notes the growth of non-communicable diseases, among which cardiovascular diseases and diabetes pose a danger to human life. According to WHO data, about 79% of all deaths in Uzbekistan are due to non-communicable diseases, and complications of diseases of the cardiovascular system remain the main cause of premature death [1]. The absolute number of deaths from diseases of the circulatory system among the population is gradually increasing, especially there is an increase in mortality among men by 11.8% and a decrease in it among women by 7.2% [1]. Approximately one third of the adult population of the country has arterial hypertension, and one fifth of the adult population is at risk of heart attack or stroke [2]. High blood pressure (BP) is the main risk factor for coronary heart disease, ischemic and hemorrhagic heart attacks in the world and the cause of death in 13% of cases [3]. Despite the existing effective methods of treatment of arterial hypertension (AH), a wide arsenal of drugs, it is still not possible to prevent complications and cases of premature mortality from them due to the low adherence of patients to treatment.
