About the Adult Congenital Heart Association.
The mission of the Adult Congenital Heart Association is to improve and extend the lives of the millions born with heart defects through education, advocacy, and research.
The Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) is a national not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life and extending the lives of adults with congenital heart disease (CHD). ACHA serves and supports the more than one million adults with CHD, their families, and the medical community. They work with them to address the unmet needs of the long-term survivors of congenital heart defects.
