Australians were killed in 2010 by heart disease. In Australia, 30% of paediatric deaths are as a result of heart disease. Heart disease kills more women than breast and ovarian cancers combined - 37% of adult female deaths are due to cardiovascular diseases. One in five Australians is affected by heart disease.

Indigenous Australians are dying from preventable developing-world diseases.

From 2003 to 2007, Indigenous people were three times more likely to die from heart disease. Australian Indigenous people have one of the highest rates of acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease in the world. Indigenous Australians have higher rates of diabetes and kidney disease, common amongst people with heart disease. The Prince Charles Hospital is leading the way in ‘closing the gap’.
