National Strategic Action Plan for Lung Conditions

Information paper

The National Strategic Action Plan for Lung conditions provides a comprehensive, collaborative, and evidence-based approach to reducing the individual and societal burden of lung conditions and improving lung health.

The plan addresses the broad spectrum of lung conditions, ranging from the common cold which impacts the health of many Australians and their participation in the workforce, education, and social activities, to lung cancer which is Australia’s biggest cancer killer with an estimated 9,020 deaths in 2017: more than breast, prostate and ovarian cancers combined.
