The PHA is the largest organization in the country dedicated to raising awareness of this rare and incurable disease. Their mission is to provide hope, support and education, to promote awareness and to advocate for the pulmonary hypertension community, while funding research for a cure. PHA is funding research directly, by giving grants to research fellows and clinician scientists.

Pulmonary hypertension (PH), is a complex and often misunderstood disease. The term PH means high blood pressure in the lungs. In “regular” hypertension(also known as high blood pressure or “systemic hypertension) the pressure in thearteriesthroughout the body is higher than it should be. In PH, the blood vessels specifically in the lungs are affected and cannot be measured by a blood pressure cuff. They can become stiff, damaged or narrow, and the right side of the heart must work harder to pump blood through.

PH affects people of all ages, races and ethnic backgrounds. Although anyone can get PH, there are risk factors that make some people more likely to develop the disease. There is no cure for PH and disease course may vary greatly. Severe disease may require continuous expensive & toxic intravenous medication delivered by a pump at home, continuous oxygen therapy, or ultimately a heart-lung transplant.
