The Heart Foundation is New Zealand’s leading independent funder of heart research and, since 1968, has funded more than $85 million in research and specialist training for cardiologists.
Across New Zealand we provide support, care and advice for people and their whānau affected by heart disease.
Our education and prevention programmes tackle heart disease head-on in the community and, through our work with children, we create a foundation for keeping hearts healthy into the future.
The Heart Foundation works closely with health professionals to share evidence-based guidelines, materials, and resources to support quality practice and heart healthcare.
We also run several courses to help with professional development.
We provide a range of resources that help professionals provide support, care, and advice for people and their whānau affected by heart disease.
As a charity, the Heart Foundation relies on the generosity and goodwill of everyday Kiwis to support our life-saving work.
