Understanding Women’s Heart Health

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death for women worldwide. In 2018, 27.2% of women died from CVD in Singapore, which accounts to about 1 out of 3 female deaths.

The Singapore Heart Foundation’s initiative, Go Red for Women (GRFW) Campaign, is a platform designed to increase women’s heart health awareness and serve as a catalyst for change to improve the lives of women in Singapore.

The GRFW Heart Health Awareness Quiz aims to help you recognise some facts, risk factors and early symptoms of CVD. Early detection will put you on the path of prevention, advance intervention and better outcomes for any potential ailment. Do also share the quiz with your friends or family members and make a Go Red Healthy behaviour change today!
