Community Partnership: Children’s HeartLink
With the St. Jude Medical Foundation, we work with Children’s HeartLink International, donating St. Jude Medical™ devices to be used for educating physicians about pediatric interventional cardiology.
One example is our partnership in India. Access to high-quality pediatric care is problematic in India due to a shortage of trained professionals to treat children with congenital heart disease, and because many people cannot afford treatment. St. Jude Medical and the St. Jude Medical Foundation partner with Children's HeartLink to provide access to sustainable health care within such underserved communities.
Our hospital partner, the Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre (AIMS) in Kochi, India, selects families with significant financial need to qualify for free-of-charge services.
