The Tunisian Heart Foundation’s vision is to advance the prevention of cardiovascular diseases to build healthy Tunisian community.
Promotion of physical activity

Physical activity is defined by the World Health Organisation as: “any bodily movement produced by skeletal muscles that require energy expenditure”.

People who are insufficiently active have a 20% to 30% increased risk of death compared to people who are sufficiently active. These deaths are mainly related to non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer and diabetes. The recommended level of physical activity varies with the age:

-for children and adolescents aged between 5 and 17years it is recommended to practice at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous-intensity physical activity daily.

-for adults it is recommended to practice at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity throughout the week, or do at least 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity throughout the week, or an equivalent combination of moderate and vigorous-intensity activity.

Regular and adequate levels of physical activity improve:

-Muscular and cardio-respiratory fitness

-Bone structure

-Reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases, obesity, diabetes, cancer and some mental problems

Promotion of healthy eating

Approximately 1.7 million (2.8%) of deaths worldwide are attributable to low fruit and vegetable consumption. In fact diets that are poor in fruit and vegetables or content high level of sugar, processed foods or sodium are one of the major risk factors for non-communicable diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes and other conditions linked to obesity.

To ovoid these diseases the World Health Organization recommends to:

· eat more fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts and grains.

· minimize salt, sugar and fats intake

· choose unsaturated fats instead of saturated fats in order to eliminate trans-fatty acids.

Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable disease, disability, and death. According to the World Health Organization, Tobacco kills more than 8 million people each year through direct use and second-hand smoking. In fact, tobacco products contain a deadly mix of more than 7,000 chemicals; hundreds are harmful, and about 70 can cause cancer.

Secondhand smoke exposure can also lead to lung cancer and heart disease. It can cause health problems in both adults and children, such as coughing, phlegm, reduced lung function, pneumonia, and bronchitis. Children exposed to secondhand smoke are at an increased risk of ear infections, severe asthma, lung infections, and death from sudden infant death syndrome.

People who stop smoking reduce their risk for disease and early death. Although the health benefits are greater for people who stop at earlier ages, there are benefits at any age.

Quitting smoking has not only benefits for individuals, but also for families and communities.

Quitting smoking isn’t easy, but with a plan and support it becomes possible. Fortunately, local and national resources are available to help people quit.
