Respiratory Health Association provides a number of free online resources for you and your family.

We publish a variety of newsletters - We publish two newsletters to provide updates on lung health issues and the ongoing work of the Association.  Our monthly E-Newsletter provides general updates on RHA’s lung health programs, policy initiatives, and special events, as well as the latest lung disease news and research breakthroughs. RHA also publishes Inspiration, a newsletter for persons living with COPD and their loved ones.

The What You Need to Know educational series - Our What You Need to Know series provides easy-to-understand answers to many of your lung health questions.  These one-page sheets provide general information on over 100 different topics in lung health, including asthma, COPD, lung cancer, tobacco control and air quality.  Many of these sheets are also available in Spanish.

Fact sheets - Our fact sheets summarize statistics and research findings on various topics in lung health.  More detailed than our What You Need to Know series, RHA’s fact sheets provide a more in-depth look a lung health topic.

Issue Briefs - Our issue briefs explain policy issues affecting lung health.  Issue briefs typically evaluate a proposed policy or identify the need for a policy change, weigh the costs and benefits of varying policy options, and explore national and local policy trends. 

White Paper Series - Our White Paper Series provides in-depth, expert analysis of cutting-edge issues in lung health.  RHA’s White Paper Series presents innovative solutions for other public health professionals, policymakers, and stakeholders.

Special Reports - RHA occasionally publishes special reports to assess the community impact of lung disease or to mark significant milestones in the fight against lung disease.  RHA’s special reports typically feature pieces from partnering researchers, community members, and health professionals.

Toolkits - Our toolkits conveniently bundle all the instructions, health resources, policy guidelines, implementation best practices, and supplemental materials you need to implement smoke-free policies in your community.
