INFORMATION & EDUCATION
Documents, videos and resources to guide you and help you better manage your heart event

Heart Support Australia (HS-A) is a national not-for-profit organisation providing support, information, and encouragement to people who have been affected by a heart event.
The National Office supports HS-A's role as a peak body while our network of Branches and Interest Groups across Australia provides on-the-ground support, particularly to those in remote, regional and rural areas.
Of the 4.2 million Australians living with a heart condition, 1.2 million are also diagnosed with heart disease. These Australians are five to seven times more likely to suffer future heart events than those who are not diagnosed.
Your support can help HS-A reach these Australians and provide them with the programs and services they need to improve their quality of life and help reduce their risk of a secondary heart event.
