International CHD Awareness Month
01 Feb 2019 to 28 Feb 2019

February is International CHD Awareness Month….. childhood heart disease is a global issue!

Some remember the term “Blue Baby” and “Hole in the Heart Baby” – these are conditions that describe CHD which, in reality, covers a wide range of conditions. At HeartKids, we also include children who may acquire heart conditions such as Rheumatic Fever and Kawasaki’s Disease – therefore we often refer to CHD as meaning Childhood Heart Disease rather than congenital heart disease.
