This improvement has been attributed in part to the joint efforts of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and the Heart Truth campaign, the American Heart Association and the Go Red for Women Cam- paign, WomenHeart, the campaign of the National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, and the Women’s Heart Alliance, along with many partners, who joined efforts to increase the awareness of heart disease in women. As with all epidemiological findings, it is a challenge to tease out which factors have led to the improvements in cardiovascular outcomes in women. Understanding what worked and what did not will guide the development and implementation of future cam- paigns aimed at further reducing cardiovascular mortality. WHAT HAS WORKED?
