World COPD Day - 17th November 2021

COPD awareness Nov 2021

The 2021 theme for World COPD Day is “Healthy Lungs – Never More Important” and takes place on November 17th. The main aim of this day is to highlight that the burden of COPD remains, in spite of the COVID pandemic. COPD remains a leading cause of death worldwide. 

We can all be pro-active and focus on keeping our lungs healthy by doing some simple things:

  • avoiding cigarettes
  • avoidance of air pollution and/or occupational exposure
  • keeping active either through regular physical activity or pulmonary rehab
  • following medical advice and prescribed treatment plans where appropriate

We at Air Liquide Healthcare are supporting local virtual events, wider awareness within Air Liquide Group and our field based teams will be trying to create a greater awareness of COPD during the month of November.
