The Heart Foundation develops new and updated Aboriginal Web pages

The Heart Foundation have developed new and updated web content on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health for health professionals and consumers that we would like to share with you. The new web pages provide information with resources aims to help reduce risk of heart disease and improve the heart health of all Australians.

Although there has been a decline (61%) in deaths from circulatory diseases between 1998 and 2018 for First Nations Peoples, heart disease is still a major contributor to the gap in life expectancy between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians.
