National Strategic Action Plan for Childhood Heart Disease Launched

Minister for Health, The Hon Greg Hunt, launched the Action Plan with a total funding commitment of $26 million saying,

“The Australian Government is committed to supporting the Action Plan by providing funding towards seven key focus areas. This includes a significant amount towards research so that we can better identify the factors that cause congenital heart disease (CHD). It is important to recognise the burden of CHD and the acute mental health and socio-economic implications. I believe the HeartKids Project will be an enduring contribution towards saving and protecting the lives of these beautiful children with congenital heart disease.”
