Take Heart: Deadly Heart

Learn more Visit the Campaign

Rheumatic Heart Disease (RHD) is a preventable childhood illness that kills 2 young Australians each week. First Nations children experience rates of RHD 60 times higher than non-Indigenous Australians.

Take Heart: Deadly Heart is a campaign raising awareness of RHD through a documentary film that highlights the impact of the disease on First Nations communities. Take Heart recognises the need for fundamental reforms to the health system to better address the needs of First Nations People.

The campaign promotes the RHD Endgame Strategy which seeks to eradicate RHD by 2031.
