National Heart Foundation of Australia

 

Description

The Heart Foundation is an independent Australia-wide, non-profit health organisation, funded almost entirely by donations from Australians.

It has been fighting heart disease in Australia for nearly 40 years and first began as a voluntary organisation of doctors. In 1961 a very successful 'Heart Fund Campaign' was conducted from which money was raised to establish offices in each state of Australia. Since then the Heart Foundation has established itself as one of the leading health agencies in Australia in the fight against heart disease.

The Heart Foundation aims to save lives and improve health through funding world-class cardiovascular research, guidelines for health professionals, informing the public and assisting people with cardiovascular disease.
