How you help

Your Greatest Impact Yet

You may know Australian Heart Research (AHR) is part of The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) Group.

We’re thrilled to share in 2018, THRF Group was able to invest $24 million into lifesaving medical research and patient care in over 40 different areas of disease and illness!

This is our biggest impact ever!

Your generous support to AHR has delivered vital medical research and improved patient care to your loved ones and the community in an area that matters most to you.

Thanks to your support we were able to progress vital heart research into:

  • Reducing hospitalisation and deaths of atrial fibrillation patients by launching the i-CARE Clinic at the Royal Adelaide Hospital
  • Conducting drug trials into Coronary Slow Flow Phenomenon to help patients relieve symptoms
  • Assessing the importance of iron levels in pregnant women in order to reduce the risk of pregnancy complications such as bleeding and a torn placenta
  • Plus many more lifesaving research outcomes!

For every $1 you donated in 2018, $5 was provided in grants to beat heart disease – yes it’s true! How? 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 support is making an even bigger difference to the health and well-being of your loved ones.
