International Respiratory Coalition – tell us about respiratory healthcare in your country

ELF would like to invite representatives from patient organisations to input into the recently launched International Respiratory Coalition (IRC).

The International Respiratory Coalition (IRC) was launched by European Respiratory Society (ERS) together with the Global Allergy & Airways Patient Platform (GAAPP), AstraZeneca and Amgen in September 2021 at the ERS Congress. The IRC will be a multistakeholder initiative and will be open for all to join.

The overall aim of the IRC is to promote lung health and improve respiratory care. The vision is for every country to have the tools to implement a national respiratory strategy based on best practice.

ELF and GAAPP want to ensure that this initiative has patients at its heart. Therefore, in parallel with the ERS carrying out a survey with national respiratory societies, we would like to get the views and input of patient organisations.

The survey has 13 questions and the answers you give will help inform the strategy and activities of the IRC.

Complete the short survey by 4 January 2022:
