About the PHA UK

Supporting life after transplant

We’re proud to be sponsoring the British and World Transplant Games 2019.


We’re putting our name to the darts and Petanque events to raise awareness of pulmonary hypertension, highlight the importance of organ donation and encourage discussions about transplantation as a potential treatment pathway for people with PH.

Westfield Health British Transplant Games 25th – 28th July, Newport

World Transplant Games 17th – 24th August, Newcastle

 “We chose the events to sponsor carefully. Darts has a strong social element to it, with the added benefit of bringing people together, which is very important to us as a rare disease charity. And Petanque is accessible to most people, regardless of their fitness level.
“We’re really excited to be supporting both the World and British Transplant Games, which both show that what might be impossible one day, can be possible the next.”
– Iain Armstrong, chair of the PHA UK
