World Heart Day 2020 is now live!

On World Heart Day, 29 September 2020, we’re asking the world to Use Heart to beat CVD … for your loved ones, society and you.

We are living in unprecedented times. The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a spotlight on the healthcare profession, national healthcare systems and our individual responsibilities – for our own health and for the vulnerable in society.

We don’t know what course the pandemic will take in the future but we do know that taking care of our hearts right now is more important than ever.

Use Heart to take part

We rely on supporters around the world to help us to make World Heart Day more impactful every year – a powerful platform for positive change and to help people live longer, better, healthier lives.

Here’s what you can do right now as we build towards 29 September:

Thank you for your support. Together we can bring awareness of heart health to millions around the world … on World Heart Day, and every day.
