Heart Foundation is an initiative to create awareness in the society about heart diseases through education and by screening people who are at risk and prevent cardiovascular events.
Cardiovascular death remains the biggest cause of death worldwide. An estimated 17.3 million people died from CVDs in 2008, representing 48% of all global deaths due to non-communicable causes, an estimated 7.3 million were due to coronary heart disease. Many of these deaths are preventable as long as the risk factors for heart diseases are recognised early and right precautions are taken. Heart Foundation is dedicated in its endeavour to raise awareness about heart diseases, screen and educate the masses and help them lead a healthy life.
