Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women
Since 2004, the American Heart Association’s signature women's initiative, Go Red for Women, has addressed the awareness and clinical care gaps of women’s greatest health threat, cardiovascular disease (CVD). We are prepared to meet the evolving needs of women now, and at every age, every stage and every season of their lives as their trusted, relevant source for credible, equitable health solutions.
Nearly 45% of women ages 20+ are living with some form of cardiovascular disease.
Less than half of women entering pregnancy in the U.S. have optimal cardiovascular health.
Women experience unique life stages, such as pregnancy and menopause, that can put them at an increased risk for CVD.
