Sign the Petition Now!

Respiratory disease affects and kills millions of people around the world each year. To help focus attention and resources on this global health threat, the ATS urges you to answer the call to action by the Forum of International Respiratory Societies and sign the Charter for Lung Health, which calls for recognition of Sept. 25 as World Lung Day.

Lung health is a universal human need that is often impaired by unhealthy air. The Charter for Lung Health recognizes the human right to breathe safe air, and that lung health is pivotal to the health and well-being of individuals throughout the world. Read the full charter.
