 EFA French member FFAAIR together with other patients and healthcare professionals’ organisations and with the support of a group of parliamentarians presented “Make COPD a public health emergency for the five year period”. 

In this white paper, patients and healthcare professionals reflect the devastating impacts of this disease in France and call on the French government to develop an emergency action plan against COPD. 

According to the document, COPD caused around 18.000 deaths in 2014, an amount 5 times higher than the numbers of deathas related accidents. EFA very much supported this call!
