Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Day

This World Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) Day (5 May 2020), we are encouraging people living with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) to reach out and share their story.

Share your story

Sharing your story is a compelling and inspiring way for you to help others learn how to cope with their diagnosis and understand they are not alone.  Your story may also encourage people to identify and act on symptoms they are experiencing, which may otherwise have been ignored.

These stories also help us in our advocacy efforts calling for better access to medicines that will help people with PAH to live their best life.

Reach out for support

If you or your loved one is living with PAH, we want you to know you’re not alone and there is support available to help you and your family.

PAH is a very complex disease so you may find the medical information confusing or difficult to understand at times. Lung Foundation Australia has developed resources in collaboration with healthcare professionals to help you understand more about PAH, how to manage your condition and help you to live better with your lung disease.

Our Information and Support Centre team are here to assist you with resources, provide general information and referral to support services. This free and confidential service is available Monday to Friday 8am – 4.30pm (AEST). Call  1800 654 301  or email us below.

Get Involved
