EFA Board Member, Hubert Nettel, had the honour to present in the opening of the 12th Global Alliance against Chronic Respiratory Diseases (GARD) General Meeting entitled “The Natural Step to Respiratory Health” that took place on 30 August 2018 in Helsinki, Finland. 

Hubert Nettel’s presentation dealt with the question whether the role of patients is neglected in chronic respiratory diseases (CRD) prevention. The presentation highlighted the reasons to include patient associations in CRD prevention and our contribution to tackle the challenges linked to this, on a European scale. 

The Global Alliance against Chronic Respiratory Diseases is a voluntary alliance for which the World Health Organization provides technical leadership and secretariat support. The overarching theme of the meeting “The Natural Step to Respiratory Health” highlighted the importance of nature and its effects on our health, well-being and immune balance.
