World Bronchiectasis Day 2023

01 July 2023 is "World Bronchiectasis Day"


Today on World Bronchiectasis Day, PATS joins with our partners in the Forum of International Respiratory Societies (FIRS) to highlight awareness of bronchiectasis as a cause of chronic respiratory symptoms and disability.  In Africa, bronchiectasis may follow infections particularly TB or severe pneumonia, but is frequently unrecognised and untreated. Improved diagnosis of post-infectious bronchiectasis is key to controlling troubling symptoms and preventing exacerbations.
