When we re-introduced ourselves as the Lung Health Foundation, our message was clear: we will end gaps in the prevention, diagnosis, and care of lung disease in Canada.
The goals that we are unveiling today are bolder — because we are bolder.
Starting today, our five areas of focus are matched up with 5 powerful, outcome-based aspirations that are guiding and structuring everything we do:
Our goal: Zero deaths attributed to asthma
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Our goal: 10% reduction in hospitalizations due to COPD
Our goal: 5% increase in lung cancer survivorship
Our goal: 5% increase in rates of vaccination against influenza and pneumococcal disease for adults 50+
Smoking & Vaping Prevention & Cessation
Our goal: 10% reduction in the rate of tobacco and cannabis smoking/vaping amongst youth
