Global Heart Hub hosts patient-led Roundtable on Late, Missed and Misdiagnosis of Heart Disease in Women

The special issues experienced by women across the globe with regard to the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease are well documented. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women, yet there are enormous sex inequities – heart disease in women is under-studied, under-identified, under-diagnosed and under-treated.

On Monday, April 22, Global Heart Hub was delighted to host a roundtable in Madrid, Spain, bringing together 27 participants from across 15 countries, including women with lived experience, patient organisation leaders, public health experts, researchers and clinicians to focus on late, missed and misdiagnosis of heart disease in women.

Stay tuned for our consensus paper!

This event was hosted with support from the Centre for Research Equity at Oxford University, London, represented by Dr Paula Wray, who is collaborating with GHH in preparing a consensus paper to drive impactful change and foster practical solutions to this pressing issue.
