The All India Heart Foundation (AIHF) can proudly claim to be one of the first societies of its kind to be founded in Asia. It was formed by a group of physicians (led by Dr. S. Padmavati) and industrialists (Late Mr. Ashok Jain of Bennett, Coleman & Co. Ltd) at the inspiration of the doyen of modern cardiology, the late Dr. Paul Dudley White and registered as a charitable society in 1962. Its membership is open not only to specialists in cardiology but also to all doctors and laymen.
The National Heart Institute (NHI) is an integral part of the foundation's research and clinical care delivery programmes and was established in 1981.
