The Telethon Kids Institute is spear-heading a national alliance of health and community organisations who are advocating for a commitment from the government to prioritise the end of RHD in Australia. END RHD is the first time such a broad-based coalition has come together to pool their collective expertise around what needs to be done to address RHD in Australia.
The founding members of END RHD include the Australian Medical Association, Heart Foundation, National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO), RHD Australia based at Menzies School of Health Research, Aboriginal Medical Services Alliance Northern Territory (AMSANT), the Aboriginal Health Council of Western Australia and the END RHD CRE based at Telethon Kids Institute.
The END RHD recognises the importance of having a diverse range of stakeholders and welcomes the involvement of additional member organisations. Please email ENDRHD@telethonkids.org.au if you would like to sign up tocollaborate with the END RHD Coalition.
