Take Heart - What is Rheumatic Heart Disease

A 6 minute video from the Take Heart film. What is Rheumatic Heart Disease?

Rheumatic Heart Disease, or RHD, starts in children as an infection from a common sore throat and possibly infected skin sores. And it can end in open heart surgery, stroke, heart failure or premature death. RHD is a progressive, chronic disease that can be fatal – that means that it progressively gets worse, stays with those who have it for life and can end their lives.
