Sudipto Roy, President, Head-Acute Business, Alkem Laboratories, stated, “An annual global initiative organised by the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD), in collaboration with the Forum of International Respiratory Societies (FIRS), aims to raise awareness, disseminate new knowledge, and introduce innovative therapeutic approaches for COPD on a global scale.”
“This year’s theme “Breathing is Life – Act Earlier” underscores the importance of early life events in shaping lifelong lung health, along with the significance of early diagnosis and interventions. Maintaining healthy lungs is pivotal for future well-being, making it more essential than ever to act proactively,” added Roy.
Roy further said, “Recent advancements in COPD research have revealed that there are numerous factors beyond tobacco smoking that contribute to the development of the disease, even in young individuals. Moreover, precursor conditions such as pre-COPD and PRISm have been identified, offering new opportunities for early diagnosis and prompt treatment. The “Breathing is Life – Act Earlier” campaign seeks to emphasise the value of early lung health and how we can expand the horizons of COPD prevention and treatment through timely action. This includes preventing early risk factors, monitoring lung health from birth, diagnosing COPD in its precursor stages, and providing prompt treatment.”
“Alkem is dedicated to promoting healthy lungs and the importance of inhalation therapy. We believe that access to quality healthcare, including inhalation therapy, should be a fundamental right for every individual. Through our countrywide initiative, we aim to spread awareness, educate the public, and ensure that no one is left behind in the fight against respiratory diseases,” added Roy.
