Healthy Hearts is a cardiovascular disease awareness service in Botswana.  Under the auspices of Pelonomi Foundation, our mission is to help our communities reduce the risk of developing CVD, which is currently one of the leading killers in our society.  Out team is made up of dieticians, nurses and weight management practitioners.

The Healthy Hearts runs a menu of healthy life style programmes, which are clinically proven to reduce the risks of suffering with cardiovascular disease in the near future, and later in life.  The community-based health improvement interventions include weight management, healthy eating cookery classes and physical activity sessions.  Those who qualify will have their own Healthy Heart Club Care Planner who will be with them every step of the way to check and monitor their progress, motivate them to achieve their goals and give them support, advice and guidance.  Depending on what your risk factors are and how ready you feel you are to make changes, our team will help decide which parts of the programme you take part in.
