RESPIRATORY DECADE 2011-2020 starts today

Year of the Lung is a successful campaign which emphasizes the importance of public awareness about respiratory diseases. That is why today we would like to suggest a possibility of continuation of promotion of lung health. Our proposal is to initiate a new campaign called RESPIRATORY DECADE 2011-2020 that will keep on distribution of health care resources.

What can we do for continuing success of Year of the Lung and advance of RESPIRATORY DECADE:

- Elaborate an electronic or paper bulletin of RESPIRATORY DECADE.

- Celebrate World Days of majority respiratory diseases and point at especially rare diseases

- Continue media campaign in all media sources.

- Involve world-known personalities in promotion.

- Organize special events dedicated to RESPIRATORY DECADE all over the world

We are happy to announce the 1st phase of our campaign: team building.
We invite all interested persons for elaboration of strategy of our campaign.

Today we start our blog RESPIRATORY DECADE for supporting our campaign.

Lung health is our priority.

Best regards,

Alexandru Corlateanu, MD, PhD
European Respiratory Society National Delegate for Republic of Moldova
