World COPD Day

November 18 is designated as World COPD Day by the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD). It is celebrated in collaboration with GOLD and health care professionals and COPD patient groups throughout the world. Its aim is to raise awareness about chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and improve COPD care throughout the world.

This year’s theme is “Breathless not Helpless!” which emphasizes that effective treatments are available to help people who have been diagnosed with COPD feel better and live more active lives, and raises awareness that breathlessness is not just an inevitable part of getting older.
