Heart Rhythm Week is aimed at raising awareness and promoting better understanding of heart rhythm disorders or arrhythmias.

Arrhythmia Alliance South Africa was launched at the 6th World Congress Paediatric Cardiology & Cardiac Surgery in Cape Town on February 17 2013.

World Heart Rhythm Week is an annual event which will run between the 1st – 7th June in 2020. This is organised by the Arrhythmia Alliance, a coalition of patients, charities and professionals who work together to promote effective diagnosis and treatment of heart arrhythmia (a disorder affecting the rhythm of the heartbeat).

During the week, the Arrhythmia Alliance is asking its supporters to help spread the word by sharing information on social media, displaying information in public places, hosting awareness activities or simply making a donation.
