World Heart Day raises awareness about cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and promotes the importance of adopting a healthy lifestyle to prevent and control these conditions. The observance highlights the significance of understanding risk factors, making healthier choices, and seeking timely treatment for CVDs. The event primarily focuses on educating people about the leading causes of heart disease and stroke, and providing helpful resources to encourage healthy living.
The World Heart Federation established World Heart Day in 2000. In the United Kingdom, CVDs account for more than a quarter of all deaths annually. Heart diseases and strokes occur disproportionately among certain socioeconomic and geographical groups. World Heart Day plays a crucial role in raising awareness among the UK population by emphasizing the importance of regular check-ups, physical activities, and a balanced diet.
On World Heart Day, several events and activities are organized throughout the country to increase public awareness and involvement. These include health checks, sports events, public talks, exhibitions, and fundraising campaigns for research and education. World Heart Day is observed on the 29th of September every year, providing an opportunity for people to join the global movement to improve heart health and save lives.
