Cardiovascular Disease (NHPA)

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the term used for heart, stroke and blood vessel diseases. It is the leading cause of death in Australia, with 45,600 deaths attributed to CVD in Australia in 2011. Despite improvements over the last few decades, it remains one of the biggest burdens on our economy.
Cardiovascular disease:

  • kills one Australian nearly every 12 minutes
  • affects more than 3.7 million Australians
  • prevents 1.4 million people from living a full life because of disability caused by the disease
  • affects one in five Australians, and two out of three families.

The NHMRC investment in research into cardiovascular disease in 2014 is more than $124 million for 642 active research grants. In the 10 years since 2005, the NHMRC has provided more that $933 million for Cardiovascular Disease, an annualized increase of 8% over the decade.
