Today is World Heart Day. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the world’s number one killer, resulting in 18.6 million deaths a year. It has many causes: from smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity, to air pollution, and less common conditions such as Chagas disease and cardiac amyloidosis.

This year´s World Heart Day motto is “use the heart to connect, and it is based ot three key pillars:

1- Equity: Disconnected hearts are at greater risk of heart disease and stroke due to lack of access to CVD prevention, treatment and control. Technology, data and digital health can help to redress the balance.
2- Prevention: It is important to look after your heart by eating a healthy diet, saying no to tobacco and getting plenty of exercise.
3- Community: Digital networks have the power to connect patients with families, friends, other patients, doctors and carers. so let’s use technology to overcome isolation and gaps in care.

At ASPHALION, our team´s mission is our passion: working together with our clients in order to generate ideas and implement solutions that contribute to improving health in all our lives. Today, we would like help raise awareness on cardiovascular diseases.
