Improving the lives of people with heart disease









The Australian Centre for Heart Health

The Australian Centre for Heart Health (ACHH) brings together our internationally recognised research, our highly successful Cardiac Workforce Development Program and our innovative Cardiac Wellbeing Program to support cardiac patients and their families.

An Australian first

The combination of cardiac secondary prevention research with the twin translational pillars of workforce development and a Cardiac Wellbeing Program is unique in Australia.

The ACHH is a not for profit, independent Medical Research Institute (iMRI) devoted to reducing repeat cardiac events and improving the lives of people living with heart disease. It is also a National Health & Medical Research Council (NH&MRC) administering organisation. The ACHH is a company limited by guarantee, incorporated under the provisions of the Companies (Victoria) Code. It is an income tax exempt public benevolent institution and is endorsed as a deductible gift recipient.

The Centre is proud of its University affiliations. We are a collaborating centre of Deakin University, through the Faculty of Health, with all research staff having honorary appointments at Deakin. We are also affiliated with the University of Melbourne through the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences; Swinburne University through the School of Health Sciences and La Trobe University through the College of Science, Health and Engineering.

The Australian Centre for Heart Health was, until May 2016, known as the Heart Research Centre.
