Latvian Society of Cardiology, Interventional Cardiology Latvian Society and the Latvian Development Innovative Medical Foundation is working hand in hand  in organizing a range of heart health promotion activities.

The most outstanding of these is World Heart Day, held every September and celebrated in the centre of Riga. The blood pressure, pulse, weight and waist circumference measurement campaign is taking place every year to inform population about heart disease risks.

We have also started promoting activities about women's heart health, creating special leaflets specifically on women's heart health, as well as, organizing a series of seminars for cardiologists, family doctors and journalists.

We have issued a book Heart and Kitchen, which has reduced the rate of heart health maintenance, and cooking.

With the support of the above mentioned organizations we have issued a newspaper “Tautas veselība”,  which can be obtained free of charge not only in the largest Latvian hospitals, clinics and health centres but also on the Internet - on this page.
