Sadly, 1 in every 100 babies born in New Zealand have a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD)
That’s why we are continuing the fight against childhood heart disease through our valued partnership with HeartKids.
HeartKids provides much needed support to children with heart disease and their families. This is done by:
- Providing high quality INFORMATION AND SUPPORT services for those with Childhood Heart Disease (CHD) and their families
- Driving world class RESEARCH into the causes, treatment and management of CHD to improve the quality of life and reduce the incidence and mortality rates
- ADVOCATING for the needs of children with CHD and their families
- Raising AWARENESS of this devastating disease and its impact on the lives of children and their families
