WomenHeart is a national patient-centered organization that provides support, education and advocacy for women living with heart disease. The mission of WomenHeart is to improve both the quality of life and the quality of healthcare available for women living with heart disease, and to advocate for their benefit. Through our advocacy efforts, we strive to make prevention, early detection, accurate diagnosis and proper treatment of heart disease available to all women, without regard for their race, age, ethnic background, health insurance or socioeconomic status. 


We are committed to serving the needs of women with diagnosed heart disease. When heart disease prevention and treatment are delayed, countless years of productive womenpower are lost. We believe that access to health care, education and training enables women to take charge of their heart health and advocate for other women. Since heart disease is the #1 killer of women, improving the heart health of women should be a priority in health care reform. 

Strong, healthy and vibrant women care for their families, are productive in the workplace and donate countless volunteer hours to their schools and communities. Healthy women can change the world, and greatly influence the lives of their neighbors, colleagues and families. WomenHeart believes that health care policies should recognize and value the enormous contribution women are making to help America prosper. 

The WomenHeart Public Policy Agenda has been developed for the 110th Congress. These policies will form the core of our legislative agenda and will serve as a guide for our volunteers as they meet with their senators and representatives. The Public Policy Agenda will be updated for the next Congress and the new administration in January 2009.
