Cardiovascular disease is the major cause of premature death experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, who are 10.5 times more likely to die from coronary heart disease than any other community in the world.

We’ve identified that those in remote communities actually don’t hold onto their phones and SIM cards, instead opting to dispose of their pre-paid SIMs and devices (burner phones) once the mobile data on them has expired or run out.

Those living in ATSI communities can provide us with their heart health data in exchange for mobile data, keeping them connected despite being in some of the most remote communities in the world, all while helping The Heart Foundation gather data on where to deploy their heart health clinics next.
