  • Title: Year of the Lung - About
    Descriptive info: 2010: Year of the Lung Declaration.. Goals and Objectives.. Organisers.. Partners.. Disclaimer.. FIRS.. members are organising this campaign because there is an urgent need for public and political awareness about the importance of lung health.. The lack of awareness is a barrier to progress in the diagnosis, treatment and care of individuals suffering from lung diseases.. Hundreds of millions of people around the world suffer every day from treatable and preventable respiratory diseases.. Respiratory diseases rank second (after cardiovascular diseases) in terms of mortality, incidence, prevalence and costs.. COPD, pneumonia, tuberculosis (TB) and lung cancer are the main respiratory causes of death worldwide.. According to the latest WHO estimates (2007), currently 300  ...   chronic respiratory diseases.. By 2020, out of 68.. 3 million deaths worldwide, 11.. 9 million will be caused by lung disease.. Our patients and the patient organisations with whom we work with have inspired us to address this important issue.. Asthma, lung cancer and (COPD) and other diseases of the lung, affect every family worldwide.. They cause much individual suffering and have a major economic impact, due to healthcare costs and time off work.. Yet the overall burden of respiratory disease is inadequately addressed and likely to be severely underestimated.. All these factors impede support for research into lung disease and the translation of discoveries into better diagnostic methods and effective treatments..

  • Title: Year of the Lung - 2010: Year of the Lung Declaration
    Descriptive info: 2010: The Year of the Lung Declaration.. 6 December 2009, Cancún, Mexico.. Download the 2010: Year of the Lung Declaration.. We, the Forum of International Respiratory Societies (FIRS), convening at the 40th Union World Conference on Lung Health in Cancún, Mexico on 6 December 2009, recognize that hundreds of millions of people around the world suffer each year from treatable and preventable chronic respiratory disease; acknowledge that lung health has long been neglected in public discourse; understand the need to unify different health advocates behind one purpose; express the urgency for increased awareness and action on lung health.. and therefore declare.. 2010: The Year of the Lung.. Chronic respiratory diseases cause approximately 7% of all deaths worldwide and represent 4% of the global burden of disease;.. Lung diseases afflict people in every country and every socioeconomic group, but take the heaviest toll on the poor, the old, the young and the weak;.. Deadly synergies exist between diseases such as tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS, influenza and asthma, COPD and lung cancer;.. Diseases once primarily found in industrialized countries, such as asthma, COPD and lung cancer, are now major problems in low- and middle-income countries and threaten to overwhelm public health services;.. The cost of lung disease runs to billions of dollars each year in lost productivity and increased health care expenses to say nothing of diminished and ruined lives;.. Yet  ...   kills 1.. 7 million each year;.. Pneumonia kills more than 2 million children under 5 each year one child every 15 seconds -- despite the fact that it can be treated effectively and inexpensively;.. Most of the 250,000 deaths from asthma each year can be attributed to lack of proper treatment.. Although it will be the 3rd leading cause of death worldwide by 2020, COPD is frequently not diagnosed;.. Nearly half of the world s population lives in or near areas with poor air quality.. IN THIS YEAR OF THE LUNG 2010, WE CALL UPON OUR PARTNERS.. To offer widespread support to the more than 160 nations that have ratified the first-ever international public health treaty the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control and call upon the remaining countries to do so;.. To demand increased research funding to develop tools and treatments ranging from new diagnostics to new vaccines and medicines;.. To strengthen health systems and work towards the fair and equitable distribution of these health care resources to all who need them;.. To lobby for improved legislation protecting the quality of the air we all breathe;.. To ensure that every health worker, parent, child, teacher, employer, religious leader, community leader, media representative and government official understands the risks and symptoms of lung diseases and how to keep lungs healthy, because lung health is essential to breath and life..
