The Indian Heart Association is excited to partner with the British Heart Foundation

 The Indian Heart Association joined hands with the British Heart Foundation (BHF) in 2015 in our mutual efforts to initiate effective public health policy, educational programs, and interventions for the South Asian community in the United Kingdom.

WEAR IT. BEAT IT.

The Indian Heart Association partnered with the British Heart Federation on the WEAR IT. BEAT IT. campaign, an initiative started by the British Heart Foundation for raising funds and awareness for congenital heart defects, starting on their campaigns from 2015-2016 onwards.

Two of our passionate volunteers Smiti and Devanshi have worked tirelessly to raise awareness about congenital heart disease. Just in secondary school, these students have conducted several events in 2015 in Mumbai, India to raise awareness and funds. Learn more about their efforts on their Facebook page. All donations from their campaign will be donated to our partners at the Child Heart Foundation a non-profit based in Delhi, India which conducts cardiac surgeries on disadvantaged infants and children with congenital heart disease.

Both the IHA and BHF look forward towards developing mutual synergy and moving forward. The British Heart Foundation has graciously shared their South Asian specific publications and the Social Cooking Project for Indian Heart Association readers, and requested that we consider starting our own Social Cooking Project in conjunction with our upcoming Ask the Nutritionist page. Check out British Heart Foundation’s resources and spread the word.

Individuals of South Asian descent living in the UK are at highest risk among any demographic group for heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Some of the great epidemiology/public health research related to the South Asian cardiac epidemic is coming from the UK.
