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. 

This scarcity is magnified in cardiovascular health. This imbalance is further amplified by the persistent brain drain resulting in the constant loss of the few professionals trained on the meager resources to first world countries. 

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