PAH knowledge meets inspiration banner

Committed to helping you navigate life with PAH

The PAH Initiative is dedicated to advancing patient care in pulmonary arterial hypertension.

This initiative reflects United Therapeutics’ commitment to providing knowledge and inspiration based on science and research in PAH today. Here, you will open a doorway that helps you better understand what’s happening, why it’s happening, and what you and your healthcare provider can do about it.

Our hope is that you find the support and treatment you need–when you need it–so you and your healthcare provider can make informed decisions that help you throughout your PAH journey. 

Be part of the Initiative and stay connected!

Join the PAH Initiative to be among the first to learn about new educational resources, find out when PAH events are scheduled, and get inspired by others who are moving forward on their PAH journey.
