Heart health funding

Cardiovascular disease is a global issue that takes the lives of one in three women, that is one woman every hour. It is the biggest killer of both men and women and takes the lives of more women than all cancers combined yet the funding allocated in 2015 was the same as it was three years ago.

80% of heart disease is preventable. Through raising awareness of the risk and symptoms of heart disease and empowering women to make positive changes – “We cannot change what we are not aware of, and once we are aware, we cannot help but change” – Sheryl Sandberg
