The first international campaign on the prevention of heart disease in women is here

It's a campaign that should be close to your heart, ladies. Deira City Centre, Dubai Health Authority and Novartis have teamed up to host Go Red for Women in the UAE; the first international initiative dedicated to education and prevention of heart disease and stroke in women

Go Red for Women aims to promote the importance of constant heart check-ups and blood tests at a time when cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the biggest cause of death in women. A quarter of all deaths in the UAE are caused by CVD, while globally 35 per cent of women live with a heart disease.

At Go Red for Women in the UAE, ladies visiting Deira City Centre will get complimentary heart health tests in addition to Body Mass Index (BMI), blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol tests. Doctors and specialists will also be on hand from Dubai Hospital to consult on more specific issues.

Be there for a healthier you!
