Dubai, UAE, 26 September, 2015: A new heart awareness campaign has been launched in the UAE as part of the global World Heart Day initiative on 29 September.


Zulekha Hospital, a pioneer in UAE healthcare, has created its Heart Care Campaign to encourage residents in the Emirates to take responsibility for their heart health by arranging regular check-ups and tests.


A range of complimentary services will be provided by doctors and healthcare professionals at both Zulekha Hospitals in Sharjah and Dubai on World Heart Day, including cholesterol checks, blood pressure and blood sugar checks as well as patient BMI scores. 


Those who wish to take advantage of the free services should call 06 565 8867 to register; the services are available from 09:00 to 13:00 and 16:00 to 20:00 on Tuesday 29 September. 


If patient test results indicate potential warning signs in relation to heart disease, a follow up appointment will be arranged with one of the hospital’s cardiology doctors in order to immediately reduce the risks of developing cardiac-related problems.


“Heart disease continues to be one of the biggest threats to the health of UAE nationals and residents, which is why our drive to encourage the community to take advantage of the free tests on World Heart Day is so important,” said Zanubia Shams, CEO of Zulekha Hospital.


Dr. Srinivasan Kandasamy, MD (Medicine), DNB (Cardiology), Specialist Cardiologist at Zulekkha Hospital added: “Initiatives such as the World Heart Day exist to help drive home the message that heart disease can be prevented, with some small, daily changes to our lifestyles. 


“People from all walks of life in the UAE are affected by cardiovascular disease.  Awareness and regular check-ups are the answer.  Health education regarding heart disease is very important to prevent heart failure and associated risks.  The medical profession is already working to increase the awareness of adopting a balanced diet, maintaining regular exercise and making the necessary lifestyle changes in order to improve heart health in the UAE.”


One of the forerunners in UAE healthcare, Zulekha Hospital has earned widespread recognition for service to patients, collecting the Dubai Quality Award twice in the last four years.
