Early diagnosis is the key message for World COPD Day

20 November, 2018

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease affects around 250 million people worldwide according to the WHO

Numbers from the World Health Organization (WHO) may be scary but leave no doubt: 250 million people worldwide suffer from COPD, a respiratory disease which has high levels of death and underdiagnosed cases.

COPD does not have a cure, but treatment can relief symptoms, improve quality of life and reduce risk of death. Early diagnosis is crucial, that’s why the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) theme for 2018 is “Never too early, never too late”.

BIAL takes part of this campaign, with its mission to contribute to the quality of life of people with COPD.
