The QHA, founded in 1981, is the only educational and research not-for-profit charity of its kind in Australia.
The QHA does not receive any goverment funding or financial assistance. instead, we rely soley on gifts and donations of support from members of the public touched by hypertension.
The registered charity is supported and run by a Committee of hypertensive patients, cured patients, health professionals and other interested contributors. These people believe that patients can help themselves to a significant extent in the prevention and control of hypertension.
Under the professional supervision of the Hypertension Units located at Queensland’s Greenslopes Private Hospital and the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, Australai, the QHA aims to:
- Inform and educate patients, healthcare personnel and the general public on the causes, diagnosis and treatment of hypertension;
- Support and encourage research into the causes, diagnosis and treatment of hypertension and into the various means of prevention of hypertension, and
- Support and encourage other worthy avenues of medical research.
Gifts and donations of $2 or more are fully tax-deductible (in Australia),
Thank you for your consideration of a $1000 donation.- the QHA commends you for your support for the fight against high blood pressure.
