PHA Founders at the Kitchen TableTwenty-five years ago, on January 12, 1991, four women met around a kitchen table in Florida and laid the foundation of what would become the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA).

From simple beginnings, PHA has evolved into an international community of over 16,000 pulmonary hypertension patients, caregivers, family members and healthcare professionals. While we have grown, PHA has stayed true to the vision and ingenuity of our founders. We continue to work every day to end isolation, provide education, involve our constituents in everything we do, and find a cure for pulmonary hypertension.

Our mission is to extend and improve the lives of those affected by PH.

Our vision is a world without PH, empowered by hope.
