This November, #GoOrange - COPD Awareness Month 2020

This November, #GoOrange (COPD Awareness Month)

Since 2002, the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) has been organizing World COPD Day in cooperation with the World Health Organization (WHO) to raise awareness for COPD worldwide. This year, on November 18, people from more than 50 countries are coming together to celebrate this year’s theme “Living Well With COPD - Everybody, Everywhere”. With more than 300 million current cases and an annual cost (ER visits, hospitalizations, lost productivity) of 49.9 billion USD, the complexity of COPD as a disease is evident and and raising awareness is a necessity. By participating in or hosting educational series, supporting safe breathing environments, advocating more research and accessibility to treatments such as spirometry and medications, we can all help support COPD awareness and management especially this November!

This November, let’s all #GoOrange!
