As Cardiovascular Disease is the number one cause of death on the planet, The World Heart Federation is encouraging people worldwide to ‘Use Heart to Beat CVD’he World Heart Federation is encouraging people worldwide to ‘Use Heart to Beat CVD’ – the number one cause of death on the planet.
Use Heart is about using…
To understand what it takes to live a heart healthy life and to act on that knowledge, changing your behaviour for a better quality of life now and in the future.
As an individual to set an example for your loved ones.
As a healthcare professional to help your patients make positive changes for their heart health.
As an employer to invest in the heart health of your employees.
As a government to implement policies and initiatives that will lead to better societal heart health, such as sugar taxes, smoking bans and reducing air pollution.
To look beyond the self and act in ways that support the most vulnerable in society; those with underlying heart-related conditions that may put them at greater risk in the time of COVID-19.
