State based advocacy

State based advocacy activity supporting local communities

Every day in each state and territory, we are lobbying government and industry to improve heart health. 

We share advocacy materials and resources with the health system, governments and the general community to encourage them to fund, resource and develop policy solutions that will address these disparities.
