Making the Invisible Visible – Raising awareness about heart disease in women

June 15, 2018

Heart disease remains a leading killer of Australian women, but it continues to be under-recognised, under-researched, and undertreated. In Australia, the disease takes the lives of 22 females every day – killing almost three times as many women as breast cancer.

This year the Heart Foundation is raising awareness about how conditions during pregnancy, such as hypertension, preeclampsia and gestational diabetes, can increase women’s risk of heart disease by two to four times compared with other mothers. 


  • See your GP for a heart health check.
  • Learn the warning signs of a heart attack – they can differ between men and women.
  • Join us in raising awareness by showing your heart!
    • Draw a heart somewhere ‘visible’ on your body and take a photo or video and share it on social media using #womenshearts
    • Donate online at invisiblevisible.org.au
    • Encourage others to do the same… by doing so you will be protecting the hearts of the women you know and love.

More information is also available by calling the Heart Foundation on 13 11 12 or visiting invisiblevisible.org.au
