Countdown to World Heart Day 2010


Countdown to World Heart Day 2010

World Heart Day 2010 is now upon us!

Over the last 6 months the European Healthy Stadia Network has worked with stadia and member organisations to promote this global health event.

Key facts:

  • On 26 September 2010 – 10 years after the first World Heart Day in September 2000 – the World Heart Federation and its members are celebrating progress in heart health
  • At this 10-year milestone, the World Heart Federation is urging governments, healthcare professionals, employers and individuals to reduce the burden of heart disease and stroke
  • Building on last year and to ensure sustained change, the World Heart Federation is targeting the workplace to promote heart healthy messages. The Workplace Wellness initiative aims to use the workplace to promote long-term behavioural changes that will benefit  employers, employees and communities.
