The World Heart Day will be observed in Bangladesh tomorrow like other countries in the world for raising awareness about cardiovascular disease (CVD).
According to the World Heart Federation, heart disease and strokes are the world's leading causes of death, killing 17.1 million people annually. This year the theme of the day is 'Healthy Heart Environments' for encouraging all to reduce cardiovascular risk, and promoting a heart-healthy planet.
World Heart Federation said, the places where we live, work and play should not increase our risk of CVD, though individuals frequently cannot make heart-healthy choices. ? BSS
