2015 Silver Anvil Award Winner - Events and Observances - Seven or Fewer Days -Associations

Category includes programs or events, such as commemorations, observances, openings, anniversaries, celebrations or other special activities.

Thrombosis is a major contributor to global disease burden and an underlying cause of three major cardiovascular killers: heart attack, stroke and venous thromboembolism (VTE). While public awareness of heart attack and stroke is strong, VTE awareness is virtually non-existent. This is a major obstacle to the World Health Assembly’s goal of reducing deaths from non-communicable by 25 percent by 2025. The International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis recognized an urgent need to address this and created the first public-facing campaign on thrombosis and VTE. World Thrombosis Day drew support from 175 partners that rallied 1,500 organizations in 50 countries.
