AbstractMajor changes in the health profile of many developing countries are taking place. Life expectancy in these countries is increasing, and people are more exposed to diseases of old age like hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. Scientific research in the developing world including this area-is lagging behind. However, high-quality research can still be carried out in spite of the limited resources. This paper identifies the different material and psychological barriers to scientific research. Epidemiological and clinical research represent high priorities in hypertension research in developing countries, and international cooperation is essential to improve the understanding of hypertension
