World Lung Foundation in Switzerland
World Lung Foundation of Switzerland was formed as a response to the global epidemic of lung disease, which kills thousands of people each year in our great country. Our areas of emphasis include tobacco control, indoor air pollution, tuberculosis, and acute respiratory infections.
28% of the Swiss population smokes, according to government data. This compares to 19% of British citizens and 17% of American citizens. Swiss residents are slowing giving up smoking however it has been a struggle. The Swiss Public Health Office estimates the health and societal cost of tobacco over CHF 5 billion annually.
Our website is under construction. We plan to provide a directory of our services and information about getting involved in our organization by Q3 2017.
Thanks for your interest!
