Event Description

The ABC to lead actions on Chronic Respiratory Diseases in Europe

 

Brief Introduction

Chronic respiratory diseases account for more than 315,000 Europeans dying every year. Diseases such as respiratory allergy, asthma and COPD cost more than €300 billion to Europe’s economy annually. How can we act to reduce the burden of these diseases on both patients and Europe’s health and long-term care systems?

This event will serve as the grand finale to our #BreatheMission campaign to ask Members of the European Parliament to take action against chronic respiratory diseases by signing the written declaration 115/2016 on chronic respiratory diseases.

The sessions will facilitate energetic and participatory discussions as we look from a range of perspectives at the importance of taking care of the respiratory health of European citizens, and how we can work to tackle the issue and improve treatment and care for patients.
