- •Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) death rates halved between 2000 and 2015 in Ireland.
- •4060 fewer CHD deaths were observed in 2015 than expected.
- •CHD risk factor improvements contributed to ~30% of the CHD mortality decline.
- •Improved uptakes in cardiology treatments explained ~60% of the CHD decline.
- •Population health gains were reversed due to increase in BMI, diabetes and physical inactivity levels.
