Abstract
(English)
The mission of the European Respiratory Society (ERS) is to promote respiratory health in Europe in order to alleviate suffering from respiratory disease. This is accomplished by promoting basic epidemiological and clinical respiratory research, collecting and disseminating scientific information, organising congresses and conferences, producing scientific publications, supporting training and continuous education in respiratory medicine, and collaborating with organisations that represent patients. However, to successfully reach its mission the ERS also needs to focus on developing a sustainable advocacy strategy, directed at national and European policy and decision makers who set the political agenda, be it in education, research or public health. Policy interventions are a necessity if the growing trend of suffering and death from respiratory diseases is to be reversed. Therefore, the ERS launched a campaign at European Union (EU) level to inform decision makers about these diseases, as well as to gain their support and the commitment required to drive through change at policy level.
