Congenital heart disease (CHD)

Congenital heart disease (CHD) is a general term to describe more than 40 heart conditions or problems with the heart’s structure that are present at birth.

Every year, 500 to 600 babies are born with congenital heart disease in Ireland. Almost 19,000 people, from babies to adults, live with CHD (Heart Children).
