A range of events, funded by a Healthy Lungs for Life grant, were held across Nepal to mark World Lung Day on 25 September 2020.
Recent data suggests that more than 1 in 10 adults in the country are living with COPD. However, there is limited access to spirometry services. The events were aimed at raising awareness and encouraging more people to look after their lungs.
The events were organised by Healthy Lungs Nepal, which aims to raise awareness of lung health, promote and advocate evidence-based programmes and policies to prevent lung diseases and promote lung health in Nepal.
