If you or a loved one is living with pulmonary hypertension (PH), we offer information, support, hope and the chance to become active in our community.

The Pulmonary Hypertension Association South Africa (PHA SA) was founded by patients, for patients - we are here for you as a source of support, connection and hope. Our patients are a knowledgeable, inclusive and an inspiring group who are eager to listen and share their experiences.

The voice of the PH community is built on the personal stories of patients, caregivers, family and friends and medical professionals. Each of these stories is a powerful tool in educating and raising awareness amongst the general public about PH.

Each of us has a story to tell. Your voice and your story are important to us. The first step in raising PH awareness across the country starts with you. Together we are stronger and can do more: becoming a member of PHA SA means that you are helping to create a unified community across the country.
