We want our research to be actively translated into policies and programs that make a difference - not just eliminating rheumatic heart disease, but significantly helping to close the health gap for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.

We're proud to be a founding member of END RHD, a national alliance of organisations amplifying the voices of those most at-risk, and advocating for urgent, comprehensive action to tackle RHD in Australia.
