The HSFSA uses the national health events calendar as a reference point for carrying out campaigns and awareness drives at target groups or at population level. As our mission states: We intend to halt the rise of premature deaths through cardiovascular disease and cerebrovascular disease (CVD) in South Africa and promote the adoption of healthy lifestyles. Ultimately, we aim to reduce the burden placed on the South African healthcare system by cardiovascular disease. Our involvement in advocacy work to influence health and fiscal policy development is an exciting journey and our venture into the research space is even more exciting. However, on a day-to-day basis our work streams go far in reaching our goals.
