Accurate diagnosis is the cornerstone of excellent care. WomenHeart pledges to support funding for all programs and procedures that contribute to and assist with accurate diagnosis and advocate for prices that will:      

• Assure that significant funding is appropriated for accounts and programs that address the diagnosis, medical care, and treatment of cardiovascular disease in women. 
• Increase funds for research in heart disease diagnosis and treatment in women, including sex specific trials for medicines and medical devices, and research in how comparative effectiveness and evidence based medicine can be utilized in the best interests of the patient.
• Monitor the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for enforcement of the requirement to stratify data by race, ethnicity and gender for drug and device development and approval processes and for results analysis and reporting.
• Increase recruitment, enrollment and retention of women subjects for research, and research trial design.
