The End Rheumatic Heart Disease Centre of Research Excellence invites you to attend the virtual launch of the 'RHD Endgame Strategy: The blueprint to eliminate rheumatic heart disease in Australia by 2031.'
Join us as the Endgame is launched by The Hon. Greg Hunt, MP, Minister for Health, alongside Ms Pat Turner AM, CEO of the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation, and Professor Jonathan Carapetis AM, leading RHD expert and senior author of the RHD Endgame Strategy.
In Australia over 5,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are living with RHD, and without urgent action, it is estimated that this number will more than double by 2031. The Endgame Strategy assesses existing and potential strategies to both prevent the next generation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children from developing RHD; and improve the quality of life and outcomes for those already living with the disease.
