Salim Asgarally, renowned and celebrated Indian fashion designer, has announced his support of the “Go Red for Women” campaign, which was officially launched at Women's Healthcare today.

Asgarally dedicated his fashion show today at The Bride Show to the campaign, which aims to throw the spotlight on the single biggest killer of women today – cardiovascular disease (CVD). A quarter of all deaths in the UAE are caused by CVD, while globally 35 per cent of women are living with a heart disease.

The fashion show, which showcased the latest haute couture designs from Salim Asgarally, was officially opened by Dr Hind Hassan, specialist cardiologist, and Dr Quraitulain Zaidie, specialist cardiologist, who gave visitors more information about the support the campaign has received.

The worldwide initiative has been launched today in the UAE at Women's Healthcare, the first dedicated healthcare event for women in the region.

At the official press conference today, Salim Asgarally joined Dr Nooshin Bazargani, Specialist Cardiologist at Dubai Cardiac Centre in Dubai Hospital and Board Member of the Emirates Cardiac Society, Dr. Eman Hatou, Specialist Cardiologist at Dubai Hospital and Sietske Meerloo, Marketing Manager for Women's Healthcare.

“CVD is indisputably the most serious neglected health problem for women in both the developing and the developed worlds,” said Dr Nooshin Bazargani. “The UAE boasts a largely educated population of women so there should be no excuse for lack of awareness of heart disease. But the figures speak for themselves – a quarter of all deaths in the UAE are related to CVD.”
