Tuesday September 29, 2015 will be....

Heart Day keeps the ticker in good working order and improves the health/well being of people across the globe.
Health checks, Co-ordination of walks and runs, public talks, shows and exhibitions are amongst others, interesting and informative events that will be organised across national territory and the globe to promote healthy hearts.

The aim is to improve health globally by encouraging World citizens to make lifestyle choices that will keep a healthy heart and promote education against obesity, poor diet and physical inactivity in children and young people.
The International campaign to spread awareness about heart diseases and stroke prevention is marked this year (like every other September 29) under the theme: 'Healthy heart choices for everyone, everywhere'.
Lessons learnt on this day are increasingly relevant as statistics prove that about 17.3 Million people die each year of heart disease or stroke across the globe. Medics say this is a perfect day to quit smoking, get exercising and start eating healthy.
Creating heart-healthy environments, reflections on the 4 main risk factors (tobacco use, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity and harmful use of alcohol) will help reduce the 80 per cent deaths caused by cardio vascular diseases each year.
