In view of the rapidly deteriorating lung health due to alarming air pollution, Lung Care Foundation was set up as a not-for-profit organisation on 25th May, 2015 at New Delhi. The present levels of pollution are a serious threat to our Lung Health.
In the WHO’s list of 20 top most polluted cities of the world, 17 cities are Indian. The pollution level in our metros is already making the air unfit for human consumption with such serious threat to our Lung Health.
There is a need for an organisation like Lung Care Foundation. The foundation proposes to “touch all” (irrespective of their paying capacity) to ensure ‘Healthy Happy Lungs’
The Foundation is working to achieve its aims by three means namely Education, Research and Clinical Care.
Creating awareness amongst the masses (including students) about Lung Health and the factors which promote/ destroy it. It is achieved by a series of mass contact programmes utilising all available means i.e. Print media, Electronic Media, Social Media as well as direct contact programs.
Lung Care Foundation initiated a campaign ‘Save Lungs - Extend Life’ for school students and teachers to involve them as ‘Lung Care Champions’ and ‘Lung Care Ambassadors’.
Currently there is a dearth of data to significantly correlate air pollution and its impact on health of citizens of the country. (for e.g. increased hospitalization due to air pollution; increased mortality in cities during Air Pollution Crises, specific impact of Air Pollution on school going children and their absenteeism due to lung/ pulmonary issues).
