WHY WE EXIST
It takes one heart to
Africa is a continent blessed with vast human and natural resources but has arguably the poorest health indices in the world. There is a dire lack of well-trained health care professionals with the resources to provide high quality care to the populace.

RHF was formed against this backdrop to address these issues by mobilizing resources to improve the quality of cardiovascular health care in Africa.
