The impact of our work

The impact of our work is profound.

When we mend broken hearts or prevent the onset of heart disease with preventative medicine, we change the lives of individual patients.

But the impact of our work is much greater.

With their newfound good health, our patients can return to school and work, supporting their families, communities and country.

Through research and education and professional development opportunities for health professionals and communities we are generating long-lasting benefits, by increasing understanding of rheumatic heart disease and supporting the development of the health system in Timor-Leste.

Our independent social return on investment study found that each dollar invested in our program returns nine dollars in health and social benefits.
