World Heart Day

September 2020
World Heart Day, celebrated on 29 September, was first established in 1999 by the World Health Federation. The World Health Organisation (WHO), UNESCO and other important organization supported this act. Initially, World Heart Day was celebrated on the last Sunday of September but since 2011 it has acquired a fixed date of 29 September. The new date was meant to raise public awareness about the danger of heart epidemic in the world and initiate comprehensive prevention measures against ischemia and brain stroke in all social groups. Its motto is Heart for Life,
