While the federal government has developed national strategies for virtually all of the other major chronic disease areas including diabetes, heart and stroke and dementia, lung disease continues to go overlooked and underfunded.
The Lung Health Foundation is determined to work towards building a National Lung Health Agenda that bridges the gaps in the prevention, diagnosis, and patient care of lung disease. A commitment from the Canadian government is crucial to realizing its development and implementation.
The Lung Health Foundation appreciates the political candidates that endorsed our call for a National Lung Health Agenda built on the three pillars of health promotion: awareness and disease prevention; disease detection and management; and research and surveillance.
