Welcome to PHA Australia


This site is winding down as we are transitioning to a new website in the next month.  We do have a very active facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/11898825145/ and for those who can't join we have an awareness page at https://www.facebook.com/#!/pulmonaryhypertensionaustraliaawarenesspage/ where you can contact us.  These 2 Facebook links will be utilised until we are live with the new website.  You can contact the committee via this link http://www.phaaustralia.com.au/content/our-management-committee  

All News Items are being posted on our facebook group page (the first link above)

You can still join here and we will be delighted to transfer you across to the new site  (see Join on above banner).    





MAKE SURE YOU HAVE : http://www.phaaustralia.com.au/ with the "au" if you do not have the "au" on the end of the url address you will be directed to our basic site without the message boards. 

All communication is via the email address you have submitted on your profile and if it is not up to date you will miss receiving vital information needed to activate your membership on the new site that will be launched.   If you haven't changed your details it is too late and you must contact Joan.

If you have any questions please contact joan@phaaustralia.com.au

Mission Statement

The mission of Pulmonary Hypertension Australia is to provide hope, support and education, and to promote awareness and to advocate for the pulmonary hypertension community.

PHA Australia is registered non profit organisation, managed by a committee that is elected every Annual General Meeting. This committee is made up of PH patients, family members and friends.

Our main focus for this website is to provide support, create awareness and provide the latest information and research on Pulmonary Hypertension. We do this by offering members a message board for PH information as well as message boards for friendly conversation and fun. The application process although easy to navigate, must meet the approval of our moderators. This restriction keeps our site private and safe for our members.  We have two types of membership - PH Members and Clinical  Members. The site is partitioned so each section is private to the other. Ph members cannot see or comment in the clinical section and vise versa. Please see the criteria for each of these under the “Join/Donate” tab.


                  Together we are stronger



 PHA Australia brings hope and a better understanding of pulmonary hypertension to many families throughout the Australia and the world.Each year brings advances in PH treatment and more answers.
