PH Human has a particular focus on pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), a rare type of PH that affects the blood vessels that carry blood from the heart to the lungs.
PH Human helps share real-life experiences from people living with PAH and a host of resources to support your PAH journey. We believe all people living with PH deserve access to the best possible care and, through our PH Human programme, we aim to provide you with useful information, tools, and advice to empower you to engage in your PAH management. If you have a family member, friend or loved one with PAH, these resources will also help you to better understand their diagnosis and enable you to support them throughout their journey.
