The World Heart Federation (WHF) celebrates World Heart Day annually on September 29 to raise awareness on the crucial effects of cardiovascular ailments. It also aims to educate people on ways to prevent cardiovascular diseases as they are the leading cause of death, globally.
The symptoms often overlap with that of other health conditions due to which people fail to take timely action in case of heart attack.
Brands took the initiative to reiterate the importance of a healthy lifestyle for a healthy heart with campaigns calling for a positive action in this direction.
Their heart-beating campaigns like #LearnCPRSaveALife, #DilKiSuno have been launched to spread awareness among the audience to prevent cardiac issues and burden caused by it.
Brands and campaigns featured are ICICI Lombard, Redcliffe Labs, Future Generali India Life Insurance, SBI General, Kauvery Hospital and HCMCT Manipal Hospitals.
ICICI Lombard General Insurance, the non-life insurance company, has picked up the grim reality that less than 2 pc of the population in India is trained in CPR against the requirement of 30 pc, as a premise of its new digital campaign,. The campaign aims to demystify the misconceptions around CPR and build awareness about this basic life skill.
The brand has aptly chosen Indian film actor Emraan Hashmi, to help deconstruct the myth that CPR is not the same as kissing. The campaign explains the importance of CPR in saving someone’s life. It also covers a tutorial by a medical practitioner on administering CPR, a critical life saving skill.
