Abstract： Objective To analyze the status of information release and the ability to identify public needs for hypertension prevention and control information in Shanxi and Hebei areas. Methods A systematic data collection method was used to obtain various information about hypertension prevention and control published in Shanxi and Hebei provinces. Based on the Delphi method, sensitive and evaluation indicators for the tertiary prevention of hypertension were determined. To evaluate the degree to which public needs were met in the two areas, the authority, timeliness, continuity, systematicness, and credibility of identifying public needs were calculated. Results The release of information on hypertension prevention and control in Shanxi and Hebei lagged behind that in World Health Organization (WHO) for 2 and 27 years, respectively, and this was mainly carried out by research institutes, with no response from professional associations and government agencies. Information on primary and secondary prevention was first released in 1980 in Shanxi province, while primary prevention information was first released in 2005 in Hebei province. Regarding hypertension prevention and treatment, Shanxi province could meet 6.11% of the public need, and Hebei province could meet 3.57% of it. The five dimensions of authority, timeliness, continuity, systematicness, and credibility of identifying the public need were 11.34%, 25.29%, 0, 50.31%, and 0 in Shanxi province, and 6.86%, 14.54%, 0, 50.00%, and 0 in Hebei province, respectively. Conclusions The ability to identify the public need for information on hypertension prevention and control in Shanxi and Hebei provinces is relatively low. Relevant departments should take measures to enhance the two‐way communication of information and improve the public's knowledge and participation.
