The South African Heart Association was formally constituted in September 1999, from the amalgamation of the Southern African Cardiac Society and the South African Society of Cardiac Practitioners, becoming the sole organisation representing the professional interests of all cardiologists and cardio-thoracic surgeons in the country.

Our membership now includes many medical technologists, nursing personnel and scientists involved in cardiovascular research. The special interest groups affiliated to SA Heart include the Paediatric Cardiac Society , the Arrhythmia Society, the Cardiac Imaging Society, the Surgical Group, the Society of Cardiovascular Intervention, Heartfailure Society, Society of Cardiac Research and the Lipid and Atherosclerosis Society.
