Our most important objective is to improve living conditions for persons with cardiovascular and lung diseases. We are a politically and religiously independent association, founded in 1939 and have been governed by its members ever since.
Our president is Mr Anders Åkesson. We got around 35 000 members in our nationwide association. In order to communicate with its members, a periodical publication named Status is distributed nationwide.
