World COPD Day 2019 – All together to end COPD

Published on 20 November 2019 by Hana Holasová

Today is World COPD Day. GCE Healthcare supports this day and the importance of creating awareness about Chronic Obstructive Lung Diseases (COPD).

World COPD Day is organized by the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) in collaboration with health care professionals and COPD patient groups throughout the world. Its aim is to raise awareness about the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and improve COPD care throughout the world.

Each year GOLD chooses a theme and coordinates preparation and distribution of World COPD Day materials and resources. World COPD Day activities are organized in each country by health care professionals, educators, and members of the public who want to help reduce the burden of COPD.

The first World COPD Day was held in 2002. Each year organizers in more than 50 countries worldwide have carried out activities, making the day one of the world’s most important COPD awareness and education events.
