COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is the third largest cause of death, yet no one talks about it. As a result, it’s under-prioritised, underfunded, and undertreated.
The world can no longer overlook COPD. We need to recognize the impact of COPD on individuals, communities and across our country to ensure people living with this disease receive the care they need and deserve. It’s time to speak up for COPD.
On November 16, the Lung Health Foundation hosted a virtual event that helped encourage collaboration and shared decision making between COPD patients, their caregivers and their support teams.
Thank you to AstraZeneca Canada for their continued support of this annual event presented by the Lung Health Foundation.
