Abstract

Blood pressure was examined in 483 Ethiopian immigrants a few weeks after their arrival in Israel. The results were compared with those from a group of 171 Ethopian immigrants who came to Israel 2-3 years earlier. Mean blood pressure was significantly higher in the veteran immigrants, whose weight was also greater. Both groups had lower blood pressure than the resident Israeli population.
