The national campaign to raise awareness of congenital heart diseases among students

A unique health initiative across the Arab world and the Middle East


Find out more about the campaign

It is a campaign through which we work to conduct a set of medical examinations in order to discover cases of congenital heart defects among our students, and to carry out awareness campaigns about the dangers of congenital heart diseases and how to prevent them, by doing the following:


The launch of the (Protection and Prevention) campaign in all state schools is considered the first of its kind locally and in the Arab world. The campaign will include educational lectures, consultations, and free medical examinations for diseases that have a direct connection with the heart, such as doing sonar to know the state of the heart’s health, as well as doing ECG and blood pressure measurement. Blood, body fat percentage, sugar and cholesterol, determining the extent to which a person is likely to develop congenital heart disease, conducting training courses for school health professionals, conducting seminars, meetings, television and press interviews, and distributing brochures and videos to raise awareness of the risks of congenital heart disease, its risk factors, and how to prevent it.
