Date posted: 14 August 2009

The Summary of the cardiovascular health status of Indigenous peoples is now available on the Indigenous HeartInfoNet, the web resource with information for people working, studying or interested in the cardiovascular health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The summary includes information and data on prevalence, mortality and hospitalisation of the major cardiovascular diseases; coronary heart disease; cerebrovascular disease (including stroke); hypertensive disease; acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease; congenital heart disease. It also provides a discussion on factors contributing to cardiovascular disease among Indigenous people.

The HeartInfoNet contains information about the cardiovascular health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, including publications, programs and projects, policies and strategies, health promotion resources and organisations. The HeartInfoNet is supported by a yarning place (electronic network), which is called the HeartInfoNetwork.The HeartInfoNetwork enables people with an interest in Indigenous cardiovascular health to share information, knowledge and experience. The HeartInfoNetwork is free to join.
