On 13 October at 15:00 CEST, a new MEP (Member of the European Parliament) Lung Health Group will be launched virtually and we want you to be part of it. There has never been a more important time to make sure that lung health is high on the EU agenda.The aim of the group is to:
The COVID-19 pandemic has shown more than ever the need to have a focus on respiratory illness and the promotion of healthy lungs.
The event launch will include talks from:
MEP Lung Health Group co-chairs, MEP Manuel Pizarro and MEP Željana Zovko, will chair the event and discuss the ways in which lung health is on the agenda at the European Parliament.
The EU interacts with respiratory medicine and lung health in many ways; whether it is the prevention of respiratory diseases via the Tobacco Products Directive, Ambient Air Quality Directives, Cancer and Mutagens Directive, or via the control of the diseases through the work of EMA, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control and Cross Border Healthcare Directive (ERNs).
Perhaps one of the positives of this crisis is that it gives new opportunities for enhancing health policy and co-operation at the EU level. This event seeks to discuss the experience of respiratory professionals dealing with COVID-19 and with ‘high risk’ patients how the EU could help improve their situation.
