One Australian dies from heart disease every 12 minutes – it is a statistic that we have to change…. and with your help we know we can.

Australian Heart Research (AHR) is passionate and determined to improve heart health and #beatheartdisease through advances in knowledge and research.

Australian Heart Research is part of The Hospital Research Foundation Group. Donations to Australian Heart Research are directed specifically at beating heart disease.

Research does take time. It also takes dedication, skill and continued support. And this is where AHR comes in. With your help we are providing the assistance that our world-class research teams need to progress their research outcomes from labs to people as soon as possible.

Our focus is on the optimum delivery of disease prevention strategies, improved diagnostics, treatments and hospital care to patients around Australia.

We need to change the statistics and help create a happier and healthier Australia. We hope you will join us in this vital mission to #beatheartdisease.


To beat heart disease.


To raise funds to support medical research into disease prevention, early detection and developing new therapies to eliminate heart disease as a leading cause of death in Australia and throughout the world.

Financial Information

For every $1 you donate, we provide over $5 in grants to beat heart disease.

This is because we are part of The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) Group. Our administration costs are covered by THRF’s commercial business activities (such as its lottery program), which also boosts our funds to research and patient care each year. You can feel proud knowing your donation makes an even bigger impact to the health and wellbeing of your community.
