World Heart Day

Sep 29
Man touching his heart

The mission of the Pan American Journal of Public Health is to serve as an important vehicle for disseminating scientific public health information relevant to the Region of the Americas. The journal aims to strengthen national and local health systems and to bridge the gap between health care and policy-makers, ultimately improving the health of the peoples of the Americas.

International Health Days are commemorations that call the attention of the public on one public health issue; for most of them, in this section the reader will find a selection of published manuscripts with links to the full-text papers.

Watch the webinar on occasion of World Heart Day 2022: experts opinions, a stroke/ischemic disease-related mortality modeling tool, a special issue on hypertension control and prevention of cardiovascular disease (Hearts in the Americas).
