Hypertension represents a major burden in Asia, with a high prevalence rate but poor level of awareness and control reported in many countries in the region. Home blood pressure monitoring has been validated as an accurate and reliable measure of blood pressure that  can help guide  hypertension treatment as well as identify  masked  and white- coat  hypertension. Despite its benefits, there has been limited research into home  blood  pressure monitoring in Asia. The authors reviewed the current evidence on home blood pressure monitoring in Asia, including but not limited to published literature, data presented at congresses, and national hypertension management guidelines to determine the current utilization of home blood pressure monitoring in clinical practice in the region. Public policies to enable greater acces to home blood pressure monitoring and its use in clinical care would add considerably to improving hypertension outcomes in Asia.
