From 2024-2026 we will campaign under the theme of Use Heart for Action supporting individuals to care for their heart and empowering them to urge leaders to take cardiovascular health seriously by providing a global platform for action.

The action is the deliberate and impactful execution of efforts. It highlights a shift from awareness to empowering with a clear purpose and goal. There is also the two-way nature of action: efforts to influence policies and advocate for behavior change and physical activity. It reflects the requirement for sustained efforts and collaboration.


This 2024 World Heart Day campaign is dedicated to motivating every country to develop or support national cardiovascular health action plans.

We know that countries don’t prioritize heart health. National policies for cardiovascular disease are lacking, insufficient or simply don’t exist.

Our global platform for action aims to give hearts a voice.


High-level decision makers are needed to make a difference, but everyone has a role to be an influencer: the professional community, patient and the public.

We will send a powerful message to leaders worldwide by calling on everyone to sign the first global petition prioritizing heart health.

Championing a resounding YES for robust health policies.
