• Mixed-effects Poisson model with robust variance was used. Model adjusted for intervention, female, age, diabetes, heart attack, stroke, CKD, prior HTN medication use, flood prevent refill, subdistrict area size, subdistrict population size, subdistrict literacy rate. Per cent and difference in per cent were calculated using marginal probability. Bold font indicates statistical significance (p<0.05).

• *Defined as no clinic visit during the entire follow-up period.

• †Defined as having clinic visit in the prior 3 months.

• ‡Satisfied with the quality of HTN care received at the UHC in the past 6 months.

• §Improved HTN services, service received at the UHC in the past 6 months improved ability of HTN management.

• ¶Plan to visit UHC again to receive ongoing treatment.

• **Spent less money since coming to UHC among those who used to seek treatment elsewhere (the comparison is among participants who received HTN treatment elsewhere before coming to UHC (n=2624)).

• ††Had times of being unable to pay medical bills in the past 12 months.

• HTN, hypertension; IRR, incidence rate ratio; UHC, Upazila Health Complex.
