The Healthy Heart Awareness Week takes place once a year in Saxony-Anhalt. And for good reason. Sudden cardiac arrest poses a real threat to many people living in this region, and if the worst comes to the worst, courage is dearly needed. The Healthy Heart Awareness Week educates people on the causes of cardiac diseases, their prevention and measures to be taken in case of emergency. It is initiated by:
- the Ministry of Work, Integration and Social Affairs of Saxony-Anhalt,
- the Initiative Heart Health of Saxony-Anhalt
- the German Heart Foundation.
