Rheumatic Heart Disease Australia

 

Description

Rheumatic Heart Disease Australia provides information specific to rheumatic heart disease in Australia, with the aim of reducing death and disability from acute rheumatic fever (ARF) and rheumatic heart disease (RHD) in Australian Indigenous people.

RHD Australia was established in 2009 as the National Coordination Unit to support control of RHD in Australia. Funded under the Australian Department of Health's Rheumatic fever strategy, the organisation is based at Menzies School of Health Research.

The work of RHD Australia includes producing publications, resources, news and events, as well as information targeted towards specific groups such as health professionals, teachers and educators, patients, family and community. Whilst it is based in the Northern Territory, it has a national outlook.
