Background: Despite the availability and improvement in diagnostic and therapeutic interventions with proven benefits in reducing cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, control rates of hypertension remain poor and grossly inadequate. Approximately one billion individuals are living with uncontrolled hypertension worldwide. Uncontrolled hypertension among hypertensive patients on treatment in Ethiopia ranges from 11.4 % to 69.9%. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the magnitude and associated factors of uncontrolled hypertension among hypertensive patients in Ayder comprehensive specialized hospital, Tigray, Ethiopia 2018. Result: Prevalence of uncontrolled hypertension was found 52.5%. Overweight (AOR = 4.527, 95% CI: 2.247-9.123), co- morbidity (AOR = 2.112, 95% CI: 1.218-3.662), non-adherence to anti-hypertensive medication (AOR = 2.062, 95% CI: 1.030-4.129), non-adherence to physical activity (AOR = 1.931, 95% CI: 1.074-3.470) and non-adherence to alcohol abstinence (AOR = 2.093, 95% CI: 1.109-3.948) are independent predictors of uncontrolled hypertension.
