World COPD Day

World COPD Day

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. This day is marked to raise awareness, share knowledge, and discuss ways to reduce the burden of COPD worldwide.

Living with COPD can be difficult. It is a progressive condition, which can impact multiple areas of daily living. There is a lot that can be done to help improve and manage the condition; this yearly campaign day provides the opportunity to raise awareness.
