Who is the screening programme aimed at?

The NI AAA Screening Programme is inviting all men in their 65th year to take part in the AAA screening programme because the condition is most common in men aged 65 and over.

Men aged over 65 who have never attended AAA screening, or have not already been diagnosed with an AAA through the NI AAA Screening Programme, can ask to be screened by contacting the central screening office on 028 9063 1828.

Research has shown that women are six times less likely than men to have an AAA and, on average, women tend to develop AAAs 10 years later than men. Women are therefore not being invited to screening at this time.
