World Heart Day 2009

World Heart Day, organized by the World Heart Federation, World Health Organization (WHO) and UNESCO, is the World Heart Federation's most important advocacy event and aims to increase public awareness and promote preventative measures to reduce cardiovascular disease and stroke. Begun in 1999 with the vision that all World Heart Federation members could collectively help to curb the global pandemic of cardiovascular disease, which claims some 17.5 million lives world-wide annually, World Heart Day is now celebrated in more than 100 countries around the world.
