New Delhi: Mankind Pharma, a pharmaceutical company in India, is celebrating World Heart Day with a campaign to raise awareness on cardiac care and promote heart health.

According to statistics published in ‘The Lancet’ in India, cardiovascular diseases affect 282 out of every 100,000 people, compared to the global average of 233. Hence, Mankind Pharma launched a campaign, which began on September 20 and will run through October 10, 2023. During the World Heart Month Campaign, Mankind Pharma has undertaken a series of impactful activities to educate and empower individuals to take control of their heart health.

Mankind Pharma is encouraging healthcare professionals to take a pledge to support cardiac care awareness. The pharma giant is attempting the largest Cardiac Care Awareness Pledge by Healthcare Professionals (HCPs). They will pledge to promote heart health awareness and encourage heart-healthy lifestyles. Upon the successful completion of this pledge, participants will receive a Digital Record Certificate as a token of appreciation and recognition for their commitment to cardiac care.

Mankind Pharma is organising over 4000 Free Blood Pressure Camps across India which will provide easy access to blood pressure monitoring and guidance on maintaining healthy blood pressure levels. They have also collaborated with 10,000+ healthcare providers to educate patients through personalised video messages to spread awareness.
Additionally, Mankind Pharma has also collaborated with The European Association for the Study of Diabetes, to help train and certify 11,622 primary healthcare centers to diagnose and manage Diabetes, Blood Pressure, and Hypertension.

The pharma brand is also hosting a public awareness webinar on tips and tricks to manage heart disease and emergency care. The webinar will be conducted in regional languages (Hindi, Odiya, Bengali, Marathi, Malayalam, Kannada, Tamil, and Telugu) to reach a wider audience. This extensive initiative aims to reach communities far and wide, making heart health assessment and guidance accessible to all.
