World Lung Foundation was established in 2004 to reverse the global epidemic of lung disease, which kills 10 million people each year. Our efforts are focused in low- and middle-income countries, where lung diseases take their greatest toll. We provide groundbreaking programs and services that result in improved capacity to fight all forms of lung disease.
Our work is centered on providing assistance to governments and non-government organizations as they establish their own knowledge, experience and infrastructure to deliver high-quality public health services. By building local capacity through research, education, advocacy, and cooperation among organizations that share our mission, we can and will reduce unnecessary deaths from lung disease.
