 WHAT IS AND WHY DECLARE 2010:

THE YEAR OF THE LUNG

Read the full text of
2010 Year of the Lung Declaration

 

WE NOTE WITH GRAVE CONCERN THAT:
Hundreds of millions of people struggle each year for life and breath due to lung diseases, including tuberculosis, asthma, pneumonia, influenza, lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, and more than 10 million die.

 

WE RECOGNIZE THAT:
The connection between breath and life is fundamental, yet the evidence shows that lung health is not high on the public health agenda.

 

IN THIS YEAR OF THE LUNG 2010, WE CALL UPON OUR PARTNERS TO:
To offer widespread support to the more than 160 nations that have ratified the first-ever international public health treaty, and call upon the remaining countries to do so.
