16th November 20222 is World COPD Day!
Since 2002, the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) has collaborated with healthcare professionals and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) patients throughout the world for World COPD Day.
Every year, World COPD Day works like this;
- GOLD selects a theme
- They create educational materials based on that theme
- They distribute those materials around the world to World COPD Day organisers (including healthcare professionals, educators and members of the public)
- These organisers host activities and events that spread awareness educate people about COPD
What is the theme for World COPD Day 2022?
The World COPD Day Theme for 2022 is Your Lungs For Life.
The goal of this theme in particular is to emphasise how important lifelong lung health is. You are born with one set of lungs, and keeping those lungs healthy from development to adulthood plays an integral role in future health and wellbeing.
In order to spread this important message, GOLD’s campaign this year will focus on the contributing factors that lead to COPD from birth to adulthood, as well as what we can do in order to promote lifelong lung health and protect vulnerable populations.
What should I do if I’m participating in GOLD activities for World COPD Day 2022?
