Together with your local member, you can help us to:

  • Raise awareness on cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death in women
  • Encourage a healthy lifestyle and empower women to take better care of their heart
  • Urge healthcare professionals to increase focus on women and cardiovascular disease
  • Encourage more research on gender-specific heart health issues
  • Appeal to policy makers and governments to include cardiovascular disease in women in their health agenda

Contact your local heart foundation and sign on to their programme!

If your national foundation is not running a Go Red for Women campaign yet, you can be the person encouraging them to start one.

In the meantime, you can take action yourself:

  • Learn your risks and the warning signs
  • Take care of your heart
  • Organize healthy activities with your family or at work: go for a walk, cook healthy meals, join or create a swimming or running team, participate to an intercompany sport challenge
  • Did you or your friends and family survive a heart disease? Share your story and help raise awareness on these conditions
