  Go Red for Women

Each year over 8.6 million women globally die of heart disease and stroke.

This is more than the total number of women who die from all cancers, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and malaria combined.  And yet, most heart disease and stroke is preventable.

Together with its members across the world, the World Heart Federation is running the Go Red for Women campaign to improve women's knowledge of heart disease and stroke so that they can take action and achieve longer, better heart-healthy lives.

Go Red for Women is an international awareness campaign dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis and control of cardiovascular disease in Women.
