Your Health and our Programmes
At the Irish Heart Foundation we work to support you keep your heart healthy.
We do this a number of ways from providing updated health information and advice to running a number of health promotion programmes in the community, workplaces and with other groups.
Cardiovascular disease such as heart attack and stroke is one of the leading causes of death in Ireland.
However, the good news is that 80 per cent of premature heart disease and stroke is preventable. Lifestyle measures such as stopping smoking, maintaining a healthy weight and diet, regular exercise and checking for and treating conditions such as high blood pressure and cholesterol can all help.
Through the Your Health information on our website you can learn ways to help you keep your heart healthy by managing your risk factors and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. You can also access all the latest information on heart disease and stroke from their symptoms and causes to prevention and treatment.
