Full Description


Hereditary Haemochromatosis (HH) is an inherited, life-threatening condition which affects approximately 1 in 83 Irish people. Untreated, the condition leads to a large range of serious complications resulting in significantly decreased quality of life and life expectancy. Treatment and early diagnosis often preserves life expectancy and quality of life and diagnosis can save lives.

The Irish Haemochromatosis Association was originally founded in 2002 as a patient support organisation, and has since developed into a patient advocacy group and a source of high quality information about HH.
