At the Irish Heart, we help people in Ireland live longer, healthier lives. We have a straightforward brief - we must stop people dying prematurely from heart disease and stroke.
Every hour someone in Ireland suffers from a stroke. Every day, hundreds of Irish people are diagnosed with heart disease. The lives of these people are often cut tragically short. Many are left disabled. Up to 10,000 die each year, which makes heart disease and stroke the nation's biggest killer. It shouldn't be this way.
But the good news is that some 80% of premature heart disease and stroke is preventable. At the Irish Heart Foundation, we believe we have an obligation to empower people in Ireland to make their health last longer.
Our work is as crucial as ever and is not possible without corporate and public donations, on which we rely for more than 90 percent of our income. www.irishheart.ie and www.stroke.ie
