World Lung Day

World Lung Day is recognized annually on Sept. 25. This year’s theme is “healthy lungs for all,” calling for Universal Health Coverage (UHC).

Universal coverage is particularly important with regard to respiratory disease. A break in the supply of medicine for a patient with tuberculosis could cause the development of drug resistance. The abrupt unavailability of asthma medicine could cause severe suffering and even death. Lack of health care provider availability usually means delay in diagnosis, which could be fatal for lung cancer patients.
The global spotlight on UHC represents an opportunity for substantial progress in the fight against lung disease around the world.

This World Health Day, the Forum of International Respiratory Societies is asking the lung health community to raise awareness of the burden of respiratory disease, and advocate for UHC.
