For the first time, global lung health organizations came together to announce the declaration of World Bronchiectasis Day on July 1, 2022, to raise awareness of bronchiectasis and its increased prevalence in many countries.

Leading patient organizations, like Lovexair Foundation, scientific and professional societies from Europe, the United States, Australia and Asia joined forces to raise awareness of bronchiectasis and its impact on the health of people around the world.Bronchiectasis is a lung disease that affects hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. It is characterized by enlarged or scarred airways that cannot clear mucus properly, resulting in recurring lung infections. Bronchiectasis creates a significant burden on patients and their families. It can lead to accelerated lung function loss resulting in long-term disability and premature death. The disease can occur at any age, though most people are diagnosed later in life. Although there is currently no cure, detecting and treating bronchiectasis early can improve quality of life and may impact the longevity of those affected. While bronchiectasis is often referred to as a rare disease, prevalence is increasing globally.“Bronchiectasis has been a neglected disease, and the lack of awareness causes difficulties and distress to many patients,” said Professor James Chalmers. “We have made great advances in the past 10 years, but there is a lot more to do in research and in raising awareness of the condition. We are supporting World Bronchiectasis Day as part of our ongoing commitment with global partners to tackle this neglected disease.”World Bronchiectasis Day, July 1, 2022, aims to raise global awareness of bronchiectasis and help people with the disease and others who have not yet been diagnosed through education, advocacy and conversation. focused on reducing the burden of bronchiectasis for patients and their families worldwide.
