May 5th 2014 is the third annual World PH Day. World PH Day was initiated by the Spanish PH Association (Asociación Nacional de Hipertensión Pulmonar) in 2012 and has become a global event. On May 5th, PH communities and organizations across the globe will be holding events towards a greater awareness of PH. Fundraisers and awareness events are happening from Bulgaria to Israel to Japan, and everywhere in between. For a complete list of World PH Day events, visit the World PH Day official website.
To recognize this annual day, PHA Canada is encouraging members of the PH community to Lend a Hand for PH. You may recognize this campaign from Awareness Month 2011. In 2011, we collected 1964 handprints. This year, we’ve set the ambitious goal of over 3000 handprints: this represents 1 handprint for every Canadian with PH. We need your help to achieve our goal.
