World Heart Day (29 September, 2020)


World Heart Day - Scale up prevention of heart attack and stroke

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) take the lives of 17.9 million people every year, 31% of all global deaths.

Through the Global Hearts Initiative, WHO is supporting governments around the world to scale-up efforts on CVD prevention and control through three technical packages: MPOWER for tobacco control, SHAKE for salt reduction and HEARTS for the strengthening of CVD management in primary health care.

A new global initiative - Resolve to Save Lives - will give renewed impetus to these efforts.
