DEAR MEMBERS, STATE PRESIDENTS AND NATIONAL EXECUTIVE MEMBERS,
World Heart Day was created in 2000 to inform people around the globe that heart disease and stroke are the world’s leading cause of death, claiming 17.1 million lives each year.
Together with its members, the World Heart Federation spreads the news that at least 80% of premature deaths from heart disease and stroke could be avoided if the main risk factors, tobacco, unhealthy diet and physical inactivity, are controlled.
National activities such as public talks and screenings, walks and runs, concerts or sporting events are organized worldwide by members and partners of the World Heart Federation.
In 2010, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of World Heart Day the World Heart Federation launched the ‘State of the Heart’ CVD Report.
IACC REQUESTS ALL ITS STATE CHAPTERS TO CONDUCT AS MUCH AS FREE CARDIOLOGY MEDICAL CAMPS CONCENTRATING THE RURAL INDIA, ESPECIALLY VILLAGES AND TRIBAL AREAS WHERE OTHERS USUALLY IGNORE AND AVOID.
FOCUS THIS WORLD HEART DAY 2011 FOR POOR AND NEEDY.
