Canadian Women's Heart Health Alliance


Cardiovascular disease (CVD) continues to be the leading cause of preventable death in Canadian women.

Sex and gender differences and disparities with respect to CVD awareness, development, identification, and treatment continue to persist.


In 2018, the Canadian Women’s Heart Health Alliance (CWHHA) was established and today is a network of nearly 200 experts and advocates working to develop and disseminate evidence-informed strategies to transform clinical practice and enhance collaborative action on women’s cardiovascular health in Canada.
