Our Story

In 1993 Dr. William Novick created a foundation to care for children with heart disease in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMIC). He had seen the disparities in healthcare provision between children in the High income LMIC’s and had a vision that every child born with heart disease should have access to the care they needed to live a long and healthy life no matter where they are born. As a pioneer in this field, he realized early on that helping local teams build capacity which could sustain a pediatric heart surgery service would be the only way to provide real hope to these many children and their families.

Over the years Dr. Novick recruited a group of clinical experts in the field of pediatric cardiac care who shared his passion and vision to help eradicate the suffering caused by congenital heart disease in LMIC In October 2014 this group of dedicated professionals came together in support of their natural leader and formed the William Novick Global Cardiac Alliance now known as Novick Cardiac Alliance (NCA).
