February – Heart Awareness Month


In February - Heart Awareness Month, we promote heart checks, heart-healthy food, sitting less and moving more.

Our Heart Health research programme has undertaken over 20 years of research into the causes, prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. This theme’s primary focus is on the leading determinants of cardiovascular disease, in particular blood pressure and cholesterol, and identifying and developing practicable, affordable interventions to prevent cardiovascular disease.
