National Action Plan for Heart and Stroke

The Australian Government is working with the Stroke Foundation and the Heart Foundation to develop a National Action Plan for Heart and Stroke (the Action Plan).

The Action Plan will identify and prioritise achievable actions the Australian Government can implement.

An Action Plan is vital to reduce the impact of stroke and heart disease on the individual, the community and the health care system. Actions included will achieve better outcomes for Australians affected by heart disease and stroke and their families.

Thank you to everyone who took part in helping to shape the development of the Action Plan.

It has been submitted to the Australian Government for consideration.
