World COPD Day

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is not one single disease but an umbrella term used to describe chronic lung diseases that cause limitations in lung airflow. The more familiar terms ’chronic bronchitis’ and ’emphysema’ are no longer used, but are now included within the COPD diagnosis.
The most common symptoms of COPD are breathlessness, or a ’need for air’, excessive sputum production, and a chronic cough. However, COPD is not just simply a "smoker’s cough", but a under-diagnosed, life threatening lung disease that may progressively lead to death.
World COPD Day was first held in 2002 and every year over 50 countries worldwide take part in activities to raise awareness of COPD.
This Day is a global effort to boost people’s understanding of COPD and advocate for better care for patients. It is annually held the third Wednesday of November.
