World Bronchiectasis Day will be held on 1 July 2022
We are pleased to partner with lung health organisations around the world to announce the first World Bronchiectasis Day, which will be held on 1 July 2022. The day will be held each year with the aim to raise global awareness of bronchiectasis and help those affected by the condition through education and advocacy.
World Bronchiectasis Day has been initiated by the COPD Foundation, USA. Representatives from ELF and other global patient advocacy organisations and professional societies serve on the organising committee.
“By supporting World Bronchiectasis Day, global partners are committed to addressing the critical unmet needs of the bronchiectasis lung disease community,” said Ruth Tal-Singer, PhD, COPD Foundation President & Chief Scientific Officer.
ELF hopes that World Bronchiectasis Day will help give patients across the globe a stronger voice and better care.
