These diseases are a group of disorders of the heart and blood vessels, such as hypertension, coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease (stroke), peripheral arterial disease, heart failure, rheumatic heart disease, congenital heart disease and cardiomyopathy.
Heart Day, initiated by Alliance du Cœur and held on 14 February every year, the symbolic date of St. Valentine’s Day, is aimed at bringing together the general public, health professionals and public authorities for a national debate in order to combat cardiovascular diseases. On this occasion, many events will be held in three cities in France, Belfort, Paris and Strasbourg, on the theme “Every Woman’s Heart.”
See the programme on the Heart Day information website.
