On World Health Day we’re thrilled to share the news of our new partnership with the Medtronic Foundation. This first-of-its-kind partnership between our two organizations is significant because it is multi-year, multi-country and engages Medtronic employees who will contribute their time and skills to accelerate quality patient care and outcomes. This transformational partnership will position us to help more children born with heart disease who don’t get the care they deserve. As a Children’s HeartLink supporter, we know you share our commitment to these children, and we are grateful for your support.
Specifically, the partnership will:
- Provide heart surgery for 10,000 children, giving them the opportunity to survive and thrive.
- Train 10,000 health care workers (pediatric surgeons and cardiologists, nurses and more) to provide heart surgery and quality outcomes, strengthening in-country hospital capacity.
- Support Children’s HeartLink’s strategic growth and innovation, enabling the organization to scale in underserved countries—doubling our impact between 2025 and 2030 by adding five new partner hospitals over the next 3 years.
Thank you for your support and compassion for children born with heart disease. Because of you, more children are living long and healthy lives.
