About Her Heart

Her Heart is a health promotion charity and registered not-for-profit that aims to educate women on the risks of heart disease. As it has been found that the death of women due to heart disease is largely preventable, Her Heart aspires to educate and empower women to take control of their lives and make the necessary changes to decrease their risk of developing heart disease. It’s well-documented that funding more research will not drive change – it’s time we moved
beyond the rhetoric and start taking action.

Our Vision

Her Heart speaks to women, about women, and for women. The organisation is committed to working with women to raise awareness of heart disease – the biggest killer of women around the world – and increase women’s chances of avoiding and/or surviving this ‘silent killer’. Starting in Australia, we aim to decrease the deaths from this disease by 50% by 2025.

Our Mission

  • That Her Heart becomes the go-to-place for Australian women to access the latest research findings, clinical information, health and lifestyle advice around heart disease for women
  • For women to feel empowered through knowledge and act on this information to change their lifestyle
  • To effectively contribute to life-saving awareness about heart disease for women

  • Inclusiveness and Respect,
  • Evidence-based Practice,
