About The Swedish Heart Lung Foundation

The Swedish Heart Lung Foundation was established in 1904 during the fight against tuberculosis (TB).

What we do

The Swedish Heart Lung Foundation raises funds and distributes money to heart, lung and vascular research, and provides information about heart-lung disease. We support numerous fields of research connected to myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure, vascular spasms, genetic heart defects, stroke, asthma, COPD and emphysema among others.

Ikon med hjärta.

We fund the majority of independent heart-lung research in Sweden and award around 350 million SEK in grants to research annually. That is equivalent to just about 15 percent of the funds applied for. In other words, there is a great need for additional funding and every donation we receive is of real importance.

We obtain no state subsidies and our activities are completely dependent on donations from private individuals and companies.
