Cardiovascular disease mortality trends for males and females RGS state from year 2006 to 2009
Cardiovascular disease mortality trends for males and females RGS state from year 2006 to 2009 From 2006 to 2009 more Women than Men died from CVD in RGS state, southern Brazil The mortality rate remains unchanged over the last years Data were obtained in the Health Government Department’s site, from the Rio Grande do Sul (RGS) state Source:
Mortality trends in women according to the type of CVD CeVD:cerebrovascular disease, IHD:Isquemic heart disease
Mortality trends in women according to the type of CVD Among all types of CVD, CeVD is the leading cause of death in women IHD is the second one Women use to do the prevention of breast cancer and are unaware that CVD is the first one killer in any age(around 3 times more under 50 YO, and ten fold more over 50 YO) Considering only IHD, even in age under 50 YO, sometimes it kills more than breast cancer
Comparison between the most frequent causes of CVD deaths and breast cancer deaths CeVD:Cerebrovascular disease, IHD:Isquemic heart disease
Mortality trends in women age < 50 Years old CVD and breast cancer CVD: Cardiovascular disease
Mortality trends in women age > 50 Years CVD and Breast cancer
Mortality trends in women age < 50 YO IHD and breast cancer IHD: Isquemic heart disease
Mortality trends in women age > 50 YO IHD and breast cancer
Highest incidences (new cases/ women) of breast cancer among Brazil’s states Year 2010 Pernambuco: Minas Gerais: Rio de Janeiro: 88.3 São Paulo: Paraná: Santa Catarina: Rio Grande do Sul: Source: Estimate/2010-incidence of cancer in Brazil.
1- Enable the reduction of CVD in women through improved prevention, early diagnosis and treatment, beginning with increased awareness Policy-makers and governments include CVD in women on global and national health agendas Medical professionals focus increased attention on CVD in women Women take better care of their heart health 2- Build global awareness, attention and commitment to CVD in women Increased funding, partners and supporters of the cause Go Red for Women Campaign Objectives
