Women’s Cardiovascular Health: The Heart Truth


  • Elnaz Assadpour


The importance of studying women’s cardiovascular health lies in alarming global trends where, despite a lower prevalence of cardiovascular disease, women have higher mortality rates. The contribution of amultifactorial web to women’s cardiovascular disease mortality in the face of significant medical advances is explored.This study asks: What are the biomedical and socio-environmental factors that can provide plausible explanations for the higher cardiovascular mortality trends observed in women? The underlying thread in this multifactorial web is the long-standing discrimination that continues to permeate women’s lives. A trans-sector policy on gender equity in areas of biomedical research, healthcare delivery, and economics—backed by strong political will to address the research gap, wage gap, and political and policy exclusion—is discussed.
