On the 29th of September, which officially marks World Heart Day, Fight the Fakes Alliance’s member the World Heart Federation will be launching their World Heart Day campaign, this year asking the world to “Use Heart to Connect“. The healthcare crisis we’ve all been living through has highlighted an urgent need to find different and innovative ways to connect people to heart health, particularly in lower resource areas and communities.

To amplify the efforts of the World Heart Federation and Fight the Fakes, we have prepared social media cards and posts (below) which you can download and post! 

We hope to see you Using ❤️ to Connect and to raise awareness about substandard and falsified medicines on your social media platforms!

Globally, over one billion people live with #hypertension which is a major cause of premature death. Substandard and falsified anti-hypertensives further exacerbate this issue. 

#UseHeartToConnect ♥ with them and #FightTheFakes!

Not only do #fakemeds jeopardize patients’ lives, but they also cause mistrust in health systems & add undue pressure.

Let’s #UseHeartToConnect with people with underlying heart conditions such as #CVD – particularly in lower resource areas and communities who suffer the biggest #fakemeds burden.
