The World Heart Federation (WHS) has
decided to mark the World Heart Day on the last Sunday in September. For the first time, the
World Heart Day will be marked on 24 September 2000.
The aim of the World Heart Day is to promote cardiac hearth and measures to prevent heart
diseases. This year the theme of the day is movement -- an appeal to substitute a sedentary
way of life for a more active one. This year's motto is: I love my heart, let it beat!
