Will Europe Suffocate or Breathe?

On the 30th of June, EFA held a successful event hosted by MEP Catherine Stihler, at the European Parliament in Brussels, to mark the launch of a first European Call to Action on COPD and to present EFA Book on COPD in Europe: Sharing and Caring. COPD affects approximately 44 million in Europe, and is the fourth leading cause of mortality. Because of the loss of working days, hospitalization and treatment, the impact of the disease on society is significant. COPD is a preventable and treatable disease yet awareness, prevention, diagnosis and access to treatment are far from optimal.

EFA aims united medical, political and patient communities to call for a coordinated and comprehensive EU-wide strategy on COPD
