This year on World Heart Day, we can all be Heart Heroes

World Heart Day (WHD) is a vital global platform that we, as well as our Members, patient groups and networks of supporters, use to raise awareness and encourage individuals, families, communities, and governments to take action now.

Across the world, thousands of people and organizations will be holding all sorts of activities on and around 29 September: from walks, runs and sporting events, to concerts, public talks, screenings and social media campaigns.

We have developed a number of Campaign Resources to support your activities and events, which include posters, graphics and digital banners in more than 30 languages. We will be launching more ways to get involved in the campaign as we get closer to the date, and soon we will make available to you different sets of toolkits, infographics, leaflets and customizable posters.

Find all our resources here, download and share them with your networks and join us to raise awareness about CVD and heart health.
