The American Heart Association
There are many national and local’s non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that promotes health and wellness to all people. The American Heart Association (AHA) is one of the oldest and more actively involved in people’s health and diseases prevention. According to the American Heart Association (n.d.), their goal is to “see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.” They fund and conduct many researches, studies, events, and education materials to help fighting and preventing heart disease among all Americans and around the world. AHA promotes many ways to decrease heart diseases, which is the number one killer among people in the world. Regarding the promotion of wellness, we can certainly see how they encourage healthy eating habits, including recipes, types of foods that are healthy for the heart, cooking skills; healthy lifestyle, as stress management, quitting smoking, stress management, healthy sleep patterns, fitness, walking, exercising, and losing weight (AHA, n.d.). The AHA, at the same time, publishes studies and documents on many of the heart disease that most affect the population. They write and publish about aortic aneurysm, arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation, cardiac arrest, cardiomyopathy, cholesterol, congenital heart defects, diabetes, heart attack, heart failure, murmurs, valve problems, HTN, strokes, smoking cessation, and many more (AHA, n.d.). An example of the American Heart Association work to treat and eradicate heart diseases are the Guidelines for the Management of Spontaneous Intracerebral Hemorrhage meant for healthcare providers published by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (Hemphill et al., 2015). The AHA helps all people across the country and even the globe despite their cultural or ethnic background. NGOs goal is to improve the health and well-being of individuals, communities and nations (Jacobsen, 2019).
