Ireland has experienced a significant demographic shift since 2005, most notably a rise in population by almost 12% to a figure of over 4.6 million and the acceleration in population ageing. The 27.8% increase in the 65 years and over age group is a measure of success in improving health and extending life expectancy of the population. Life expectancy in Ireland has increased by almost three years since 2003 and is now above the average for the EU.
The key driver behind this extended life expectancy is the reduced mortality rates from major diseases in the older age groups, which is reflected by a fall of 30% from circulatory system diseases and 10% from cancer death rates between 2004 and 2013. The combination of modern health services, including acute, generalist and specialist, has significantly contributed to the current health of the population.
IDI has access to the health professionals who were at the forefront for the planning and provision of health services which have delivered the afore-mentioned statistics. The experience of IDI in managing health projects in emerging markets matched with the know-how of the Irish health service can be of value to your organisation.
