About us

We're a global family of over 6,000 pulmonary hypertension professionals united in our vision for a world without pulmonary vascular disease. We believe we can achieve this together, and we won’t stop until we do.

Our vision is to reduce the global burden of Pulmonary Vascular Disease (PVD). Our mission is to see it acknowledged as a major global condition. It should be well understood and properly resourced to improve diagnosis, treatment, and care for everyone.

With a network spanning over 100 countries, we are the only not-for-profit membership organisation dedicated entirely to enhancing PVD research and education globally. 

We are scientists, researchers, doctors, pharmaceutical companies, drug regulators, healthcare practitioners, patients, family members and anyone with a specific interest in Pulmonary Hypertension (PH). 

Together, we aim to develop better treatment options for patients worldwide and raise awareness of PH among healthcare practitioners globally to help patients get diagnosed earlier. Eventually, we aim to find a cure for PVD.
