World Heart Day takes place on 29th September every year and is the World Heart Federation‘s and the world’s biggest platform for raising awareness about cardiovascular disease, including heart disease and stroke.
This year, our campaign focuses on creating a global community of Heart Heroes … people from all walks of life who are acting now to live longer, better, heart-healthy lives by making a promise.
Our aim is to educate, inspire and motivate people to keep their hearts healthy while encouraging them to act as influencers themselves.
The campaign website features all sorts of resources to support individuals and organizations to run World Heart Day events and activities. These are available in multiple languages to view and download instantly on the Resources page. More languages and resources will be uploaded as we come closer to the date, so you are more than welcome to subscribe to receive any updates.
Add your event to our Worldwide Activities Map. Complete a short form specifying your contact information and the details of your event to get featured on our spinning globe. We look forward to hearing about your plans!
In recent years more and more of the world’s iconic landmarks, monuments and buildings have illuminated red in support of World Heart Day.
