World Heart Day 2019 is celebrated to spread awareness concerning the health of heart among people all through the world. This initiative was supported in the year 2000 to tell people to take care of their hearts. A huge percentage of the common public within society is full of heart diseases. That’s like stroke, heart attack, and heart failure, etc. Heart issues are the leading causes of death within the world. Both governmental and non-governmental organizations celebrate this day from all over the globe. They do this by organizing activities like marathons, walks, public talks, fitness sessions, exhibitions and science fairs.
