ELF and ERS – Healthy Lungs for Life campaign
In September, the European Lung Foundation (ELF) and the European Respiratory Society (ERS) will launch the ‘Healthy Lungs for Life campaign’ to incorporate the next World Spirometry Day (WSD).
The objective of the campaign is to seek to reduce the number of people suffering from respiratory disease by raising awareness and knowledge of lung conditions and ways to prevent lung damage.
In 2014, Healthy Lungs for Life, one of the largest ever lung health campaigns aims to increase knowledge of the impact of poor air quality on lung health and raise awareness of the actions that everyone can take to protect their own lungs from indoor and outdoor air pollution.
The theme of 2014 is ‘Breathe clean air’, where the message will be spread about the importance of air quality for lung health to scientists, healthcare professionals, policy makers, patients and members of the public through events during the ERS Congress in Munich, and across the globe via WSD.
