The Education for Health charitable fund Cardiorespiratory diseases account for nearly 40% of all deaths worldwide. Millions of these deaths are unnecessary and are preventable. Education for Health makes a real difference; skills for earlier and more effective diagnosis are urgently needed. Our training develops the skills and knowledge of health professionals enabling them to more effectively diagnose, manage and treat patients, improve health outcomes and quality of life.

Donating to our charitable fund offers you a chance to personally improve the lives of people with long term conditions by improving the quality of their healthcare. The fund is promoted to health professionals working in deprived areas with the most pressing health needs, in the UK and overseas, and offers full or part educational sponsorship.
