Pulmonary Hypertension Western Australia (PHWA)

PHWA is an organisation that offers support, advocacy, referral, information and educational resources about pulmonary hypertension (PH) to patients, carers, family and health professionals in WA. Some of the services provided include support group meetings, guest speakers, patient resources, education and a quarterly magazine. PHWA is a non-profit charitable organisation focused on helping those with PH to live well.

It recently won a prestigious international award the “PHA USA Tom Lantos Innovation in Community Services Award” which took the form of a grant funded by a pharmaceutical company to develop a project called “We are PHamily”. The aim is to introduce first time educational resources and awareness raising tools to assist patients on their PH journey helping them to better manage their disease.
