Our second, annual compendium of Australian heart disease statistics, produced with our project partners at Deakin University, presents a compelling picture of heart disease in Australia today. It offers up-to-date data on the behavioural and medical risk factors, treatment, morbidity and mortality relating to heart disease.
The data paints a grim picture of our future heart health and presents a resounding motive for urgent action. The Heart Foundation will continue to drive change to improve Australia’s heart health and calls for the development of a nationally funded action plan to drive prevention, treatment and research to save lives, improve health and decrease healthcare costs.
