Gender and Heart Disease

Women from low socio-economic backgrounds are 25% more likely to suffer a heart attack than disadvantaged men, research shows. The findings showed that lower socioeconomic status, compared to higher, is associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease for both sexes, but women from more disadvantaged backgrounds were relatively more likely to suffer from coronary heart disease than similarly affected men, reports World Heart Federation Website. “Our study has shown there is a significant difference between the sexes – more disadvantaged women are suffering from heart disease than their male counterparts, which is concerning,” said Sanne Peters, research student at The George Institute for Global Health, in Britain. For the study, the team examined data from 22 million people from North America, Europe, Asia and Australasia. The results demonstrated a need for tailored interventions for women to address the gender gap and deliver the best possible care.
