Hypertension is one of the leading causes of premature death worldwide. The 2018 Indonesian prevalence of hypertension based on the results of population measurements at the age of 18 years or above was 34.1%. The hypertension prevalence in the North Sulawesi Province is still very high. Health services usually initiate from primary health care, such as primary health centres or family physicians. Family physicians are responsible for providing comprehensive health services to every individual, including hypertension. This study aimed to measure the prevalence of hypertensive patients during the COVID-19 pandemic in family physician practices.
