Mission Statement

Making "Poor " Hearts Beat Better

Over one million people die or live a foreshortened, compromised life because they need but cannot afford a pacemaker, implantable defibrillator or cardiac resynchronization device. Heartbeat International desires to provide the needed devices and related medical care to underprivileged patients around the globe.

Description

Heartbeat International obtains implantable devices from the pacemaker industry and distributes them worldwide through an organized network including Rotary Districts and Clubs. Physicians identify a patient's medical need; Rotarians assure the patient's economic need; and then Physicians and hospitals implant the devices at no charge to the qualified patients.
