World COPD Day History
COPD Day is a global campaign to raise awareness and support for new treatments of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD are diseases that cause airflow blockage and breathing related problems. Although you can be treated for COPD, there is no cure for it. According to WHO, COPD is the third leading cause of death, which claimed the lives of 3.2 million people in 2019. The theme in 2022 is “Your Lungs for Life,” which highlights the importance of lifelong lung health. COPD Day is celebrated annually in November.
