Today is World Heart Day 2021. This year’s focus is on using your knowledge, compassion and influence to make sure you and your loved ones live heart-healthy lives.

Cardiovascular Disease is the world’s biggest killer as 18.6 million people die from the disease each year. It can be caused by smoking, pollution, diabetes, obesity and more.

The World Heart Federation (WHF) aims to use digital health to provide further awareness of Cardiovascular Disease, seek better management and ultimately encourage its prevention. Digital tools like fitness apps and trackers can help manage your health and keep you motivated. As those with Cardiovascular Disease are more likely to develop severe forms of COVID-19, digital networks have been able to connect patients with doctors and ensure they are not alone in isolation. The WHF promotes this use of technology as a way to tackle Cardiovascular Disease.
