Abstract: patient’s complince to therapy is it pharmacological or non-pharmacological ,is the key factor for controlling HTN.compliance involves not only taking the prescribed medcations but also adherence to follow -up appointments and maintaining the recommended life style modifications .furthermore ,the patient should be an active participant in the plan of care .patient’s knowledge of HTN and it’s complications is an important factor in achieving better compliance ,and hence control. In this study we assessed the level of compliance among hypertensievs in three teaching hospital in Khartoum state, & identified factors contributing to poor compliance. One hundred &eleven out patients were interviewed using pretested, structured, mostly closed ended questionnaire in KHARTOUM, ALSHAAB &OMDURMAN teaching hospitals in across sectional study. We found that %86 of HYPS had good compliance &the main cause of poor compliance is the forgetfulness (%53), Most of HYPS knew most of the complications of their disease,%56 of HYPS check up their BP regularly &the main cause of not checking is the absence of symptoms (%48), %87 of HYPS follow up with their doctors regularly &the main cause of not going to the doctors is the absence of symptoms (%36),Most of HYPS suffer from modifiable risk factors &they try to modify them, Sex, age, education, combination therapy& money, all these are factors that can affect compliance of HYPS. Based on the findings of this study ,there is a need for launching a comprehensive approach involving health care providers ,patients and the general public to educating patients on t he need to take their drugs regularly &in the manner prescribed &to check up their BP &follow up with their doctors regularly.
