Policy Successes

Advocacy is at the core of Respiratory Health Association's mission to promote healthy lungs and fight lung disease. Policies that address tobacco control, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer and air quality help us all to better prevent, manage and cure lung disease. Through our advocacy efforts, we enact changes that will benefit generations to come. 


Our successes are a reflection on the dedicated volunteers who make our advocacy efforts possible. Through your visits, calls and emails to legislators, our representatives understand what it is like to live with COPD, to manage a child's asthma or to care for people living with lung cancer. By giving a voice to people living with lung disease, we've been able to pass lung-friendly policies.
