Campaigns for lung health

As a principal partner in the Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) Alliance, The Union has been active over the past several years in building awareness of chronic respiratory diseases, cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases and the need to address the growing NCD crisis caused by these diseases among low- and middle-income populations worldwide. These efforts led to the Global Plan for NCDs approved by the World Health Assembly in 2013 and are helping to shape the post-2015 development agenda. In addition, as a partner in the Forum of International Respiratory Diseases (FIRS), The Union was a major sponsor of the 2010 Year of the Lung campaign.
