What We Do

World Lung Foundation was established in 2004 in response to the global epidemic of lung disease, which kills 10 million people each year. Our efforts are focused in low- and middle-income countries, where lung diseases take their greatest toll. We provide groundbreaking programs and services that result in improved capacity to fight all forms of lung disease. The organization’s areas of emphasis include tobacco control, indoor air pollution, tuberculosis, and acute respiratory infections. The organization also works on maternal and infant mortality reduction initiatives.

Our work is centered on providing assistance to governments and non-government organizations as they establish their own knowledge, experience and infrastructure to deliver high-quality public health services. We seek to improve global health by improving local health capacity, by supporting operational research, by developing public policy and by delivering public education.
