Description

Rheumatic heart disease is a significant cause of cardiac disability and death in Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. Indigenous Australians have one of the highest incidence rates of rheumatic heart disease in the world and are significantly more likely to be hospitalised or die from these conditions than non-indigenous Australians.
The Heart Foundation has produced acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease quick reference guides.
