World COPD Day 2020

18 November is World COPD Day. 

Although Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is preventable and treatable, it is currently the third leading cause of death globally and is highly prevalent in low resource countries.

This year's World COPD Day aims to continue raising awareness and presenting new knowledge and novel therapeutic strategies for COPD worldwide.
