Celebrate National Wear Red!

Support World Heart Federation Strategic Partner the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Go Red for Women campaign. Wear red and share your photos on Twitter using #GoRedWearRed.




Why Go Red? Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year, killing approximately one woman every 80 seconds. Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action. That’s why this year AHA is asking that you wear red on National Wear Red Day® and share the message that together we can improve the health of all women.


Find out more about why we wear red in honour of Wear Red Day.
