World Heart Day is celebrated every year on 29 September. In May 2012, world leaders committed to reducing global mortality from non-communicable diseases (NCDs) by 25% by 2025. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is accountable for nearly half of all NCD deaths making it the world’s number one killer. World Heart Day is, therefore, the perfect platform for the CVD community to unite in the fight against CVD and reduce the global disease burden.
A great initiative by world leaders to celebrate and spread awareness about how keeping heart healthy is very important.
This is a very good idea to share the special days celebrated across the world. Very informative and something new to learn.
