Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a disease affecting the arteries of the lungs. It can affect anyone, regardless of age, sex, or social or ethnic background. In pulmonary hypertension, the arteries of the lungs become narrowed and scarred. This can result in almost complete closing of the arteries, and can lead to heart failure. PH is a life-threatening disease for which there is currently no cure.
The Pulmonary Hypertension Association of Canada (PHA Canada) is a national registered charitable organization, established by patients, caregivers, parents and family members affected by pulmonary hypertension (PH). Our vision is a better life for all Canadians living with PH. Our mission is to empower the Canadian PH community through awareness, advocacy, education, research and patient support.
Join our vibrant community of PH patients and caregivers.
