Hypertension can have a significant impact on reproductive and maternal health. Hypertension is one of the leading—and most preventable—contributors to maternal death and to disparities in maternal morbidity and mortality. Additionally, hypertension can affect fertility and the use of some contraceptive methods.
This social media toolkit provides sample social media graphics and messages to raise awareness about the role of hypertension in reproductive health, and to communicate the availability of hypertension screening, prevention, and management services to clients to support their overall and reproductive health.
Images are provided in dimensions for Facebook, Instagram, and X (formerly Twitter). Download the full ZIP file of images at the supplemental materials link to the right.
These sample messages, organized by category, can be used as-is, or adapted to tailor them to the communities served by your family planning agency.
