Kuwait Heart Foundation chief has called for the most effective precautionary measures to prevent heart and blood vessel diseases among women.

The call by Faisal Al Mutawa was issued in a press statement on Wednesday to mark the International Women’s Day.
Al Mutawa warned that some of the leading factors that cause health problems are overweight, unhealthy diet and smoking and that although cardiac diseases and disorders were commonly known among men, women could develop them as well.

World Health Organization set March 8 to celebrate women and to highlight the importance of promoting women’s health amid reports that 10 percent of women have heart diseases due to smoking, Kuwait News Agency (Kuna) reported.

“There are other health problems that women face,” Al Mutawa said. “Therefore Kuwait Heart Foundation always strives to hold more awareness campaigns and to promote means of treatment, diagnosis and rehabilitation that should be put to use.”
