Each year new and recurrent MI and fatal CHD will impact an estimated 380,000 women3. 4. Women aged 45 years and older are less likely than men of that age group to survive a year after their first heart attack2. 5. Only about 33% of all percutaneous coronary interventions were performed on women in 20102. 6. Almost two-thirds (64%) of women who die suddenly of coronary heart disease have no previous symptoms4. 7. According to the survey conducted by Mosca et al. in 2006, only 55% of women knew that cardiac disorder is the leading cause of death among women5.

The epidemic of cardiovascular diseases in India is advancing rapidly. The state of affairs has been challenged in the recent years by a series of studies, which shows an alarming rise in cases of Cardio Vascular Disease mainly in women. The Global Burden of Diseases (GBD) study reported estimated mortality from coronary heart disease (CHD) in India at 1.6 million in the year 2000. More women than men now die of heart disease. CVD claims life of more women every year than all forms of cancer combined. Though CVD is the worlds number one killer but still the facts about Heart Disease are tragically absent from our contemporary public dialogue. Against this background, the summit is to bring about steadfast management of CVD in women and proposing effective healthcare solutions for growing concerns about the escalating health threats that it poses.

Vedna Survey
The VEDNA survey Visualizing the Extent of heart Disease in INdiAn women, intended to map the trends of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) in Indian women, covered almost 600 health care professionals of metros and non-metro cities from across the country, exposed shocking facts around womens heart health in India 54% of cardiologists observed a 16-20% of overall growth rate in cardiovascular diseases among women in the last five years.  41% of the doctors claimed an alarming 10-15% growth rate in cardiovascular diseases among the age group of 20-40 years, the category of women which was earlier considered protected from heart ailments.  83% of the doctors believed that Indian women are ignorant about heart diseases.  76% of the doctors observed that women die of heart diseases due to late presentation to the hospital.  66% of the doctors cited that CVD death amongst women was due to late diagnosis.
