We all need to breathe. The average European will breathe in and out 20,000 times a day, and the weight and scale of those breaths tells an accurate story of our well-being. Even before COVID-19, lung diseases were some of Europe’s biggest killers, despite most of them being preventable or manageable.

Post-COVID-19, Europe still does not have a single, targeted plan for lung health. Improving three areas, prevention, care and research, is the fastest way to alleviate the strain on our healthcare systems, improve millions of lives, and boost preparedness for the next health crisis.

Tackling lung health relies on early diagnosis and timely intervention, as well as ensuring access to the right treatments. It requires a multidisciplinary approach to lung health which focuses not only on symptom management but holistic care; one that also places a strong emphasis on preventative measures – including increasing health literacy, strengthening overall, lifelong health to prevent infection and promote research into the most pressing challenges.The time is now for a lung health policy that helps Europe to #KeepBreathing.
