Chevron

Leading energy company Chevron Australia partners with the Heart Foundation to deliver the Pilbara Aboriginal Heart Health Program

The Pilbara Aboriginal Heart Health Program helps to address inequity in heart health outcomes in three communities: Karratha, Onslow and Roebourne.

The local Aboriginal community guided the program’s development, ensuring its focus on delivering activities to improve heart health. The program covers heart-healthy diets; information and motivation around the heart health benefits of exercise; heart health education; and access to heart healthcare services.
