The new survey results were released today in conjunction with the World Heart Federation's World Heart Day 2008, a global advocacy campaign aimed at increasing public awareness and promoting the use of preventive measures to reduce the incidence of CVD. World Heart Day 2008 will be observed on Sunday, 28 September. This year's theme - "Know Your Risk" - focuses on improving understanding of personal risk for cardiovascular disease, including hypertension. As part of the campaign, heart health screening and other activities for the public are being planned in over 100 countries worldwide.
