Australia's Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) has sounded an alarm over the incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) among women. In a report published yesterday, it warns that around two million women have CVD, including around 226,000 with coronary heart disease, 168,000 who have had a stroke and 176,000 who have heart failure. In 2006, CVDs were responsible for more than one third (over 24,000) deaths among women.
