In times of Corona it is more important than ever to take care of your own heart – for yourself, your relatives and the society. Because a healthy heart lowers the risk for subsequent illnesses such as high blood pressure or overweight just like for a heavy course of COVID-19. The World Heart Day on 29 September would like to draw attention to the importance of heart health.
World Heart Day is an initiative of the World Heart Federation (WHF), which brings together the heart foundations and cardiological societies of more than one hundred countries. The interests of Germany are represented by the German Heart Foundation.
"Use heart to beat cardiovascular disease" is the motto of this year's World Heart Day.

This year's slogan is "Use Heart to Beat CVD". The aim is to encourage people to engage in activities that are good for their hearts and thus defeat risk diseases for heart attacks and strokes such as high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity.
The aim is to show that everyone can do something for their own heart health: eat healthier food, exercise more in everyday life, reduce stress and stop smoking. Medical professionals in particular should set an example by educating patients about the positive impact of a healthy lifestyle and organizing health campaigns – true to the motto "Be a Heart Hero".
