Epidemiology projects have been established in Australia and New Zealand to investigate the likely incidence and nature of congenital heart disease treated in these regions, and are expected to deliver publishable outcomes in 2017.

Dr Tom Gentles and Dr Clare O'Donnell from the Green Lane Paediatric and Congenital Cardiac Service at Starship Children's Hospital in Auckland, New Zealand are studying the trends in cardiac surgery and burden of disease in congenital heart disease in New Zealand.

A/Prof Nelson Alphonso and A/Prof Robert Justo from the Lady Client Hospital in QLD, Australia are studying a two-year snapshot of the prevalence and burden of management of congenital heart disease in QLD.
