Lung Foundation Australia Key Messages

1. One in seven Australians die because of lung disease every year, yet many of us continue to ignore the signs or symptoms, often not doing anything about it for far too long.

2. If you are more breathless than others your age or have had a cough for more than three weeks, see your doctor about your lung health.

3. We’re used to thinking about our heart, skin and breast health but our lungs are equally important. It’s time we made our lung health a priority as well.

4. Lung Foundation Australia supports people with lung disease and their carers.  If you’ve been diagnosed with a lung disease, visit our website to see the many resources and programs we have to help at
