  • People living in lower socioeconomic groups, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and those living in regional areas generally have higher rates death resulting from CVD.

Heart attack is a leading cause of hospitalisation and death in Australia, claiming on average 19 lives every day. That’s one person every 74 minutes.

  • Every nine minutes, one person is hospitalised due to a heart attack.
  • One in three Australians personally knows someone who has had a heart attack.
  • Twice as many men experience heart attacks compared to females.
  • An estimated 430,000 Australians have had a heart attack at some point in their lives, and every year, 57,000 Australians suffer a heart attack.
