Breathe Better September is a national movement for Kiwis to show their support for better breathing and healthy lungs.
Respiratory disease (or lung disease) includes asthma, COPD, lung cancer, bronchiolitis, pneumonia and countless other conditions. Although respiratory disease is largely preventable, In New Zealand it affects 1 in 6 Kiwis or 700,000 people, costing us $6 billion each year and is our third leading cause of death.
These statistics are getting worse. Action needs to be taken NOW.
We're finalising our plans for Breathe Better September 2017, and will be ready to share these with you soon! Check back here for updates.
