“#UseHeart … for society, your loved ones and you” is the theme the World Heart Federation has selected for this year’s World Heart Day.

World Heart Day was established in 1999 by the WHO in collaboration with the World Heart Federation to celebrate the importance of healthy, hearty living by eradicating cardiovascular diseases. Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is one of the most common form of death globally with the majority of deaths caused by stroke or coronary heart diseases. It should be known that majority of the CVD related deaths are reported in developing countries (low and middle income) as opposed to developed countries.  This is due to high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, tobacco use, alcohol use, low fruit and vegetable intake, and obesity. CVD has a massive impact on the economy of a country due to the high health costs associated with treatment and loss of productivity due to disabilities rendered by CVD. Unfortunately, most developing countries rarely give significance to heart diseases over communicable diseases.

Every year the World Heart Day is celebrated on the 29th of September with events and literature to promote healthy lifestyles.

#UseHeart is about using…

Your head…

Your influence…

Your compassion…

How to observe World Heart Day?

What can healthcare providers do?

Healthcare providers can invest in cloud based healthcare information systems to maintain the histories of their patient’s health that can be later cross-utilized by other healthcare practices to determine a patient’s heart condition in the future.
