About PHA PHA's Mission and Vision Our mission is to extend and improve the lives of those affected by PH. Our vision is a world without PH, empowered by hope. From simple beginnings – four women who met around a kitchen table in Florida in 1991 – the Pulmonary Hypertension Association has evolved into an international community of over 16,000 pulmonary hypertension patients, caregivers, family members and healthcare professionals. We are now the largest and oldest PH association in the world, and we are changing the history of an illness. In the 25 years since that first meeting, the number of FDA-approved PH treatments has grown from 0 to 14, PHA research programs have been supported by commitments of more than $17 million, and more than two dozen Pulmonary Hypertension Care Centers have completed PHA’s accreditation process. PHA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that relies on donations to fund its many programs, including the nation’s largest PH patient and caregiver support group network, lifesaving early diagnosis awareness and education programs, specialty care resources, and research to find ways to prevent and cure PH. For 13 consecutive years, PHA has received the highest rating — four stars — for fiscal accountability and transparency from Charity Navigator, placing it in the top half of 1 percent of all rated charities. 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.
