Charter for Lung Health

PATS urges all members to sign the Charter for Lung Health.

On 25 September 2019, we will celebrate the 3rd World Lung Day. 

The Forum of International Respiratory Societies (FIRS), which PATS is a member of, launched the Charter for Lung Health in 2017, calling for better lung health and the creation of a World Lung Day.

PATS is a signatory to the Charter and is committed to advocating for respiratory health in Africa and beyond.  We urge PATS members to add their names to the Charter to show their commitment to improved lung health around the world.
