Created by the World Heart Federation, the World Heart Day is a global campaign celebrated every year on 29th September to create awareness around the world on Cardio-Vascular Diseases (CVD). CVD takes lives of 17.9 million people every year, 31% of all global deaths. Triggering these diseases – which manifest primarily as heart attacks and strokes – are tobacco use, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, and the harmful use of alcohol. This, in turn, shows up in people as raised blood pressure, elevated blood glucose, and obesity risks detrimental to good heart health. The campaign aims to drive action to educate people that by controlling these risk factors, at least 80% of premature deaths from heart disease and stroke could be avoided. The students prepared various info-graphs to create awareness towards the risk of CVD and ways to control them. Furthermore, Heart promises were taken up by both professors and students towards maintaining a healthy lifestyle and reduce the risk factors.
