Abstract

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a preventable and treatable disease often underestimated; it continues to cause a heavy health and economic burden around the world. Some of the risk factors for COPD are well-known and include smoking, occupational exposures and air pollution. In most of the world, COPD prevalence and mortality are still increasing and will likely continue to rise in response to increase in smoking, particularly in women. Better public health and medical interventions that target both the risk factors for COPD and earlier intervention may decrease growing public health impact of COPD. Resources aimed at smoking cessation and prevention, COPD education and early detection, and better treatment will be of the most benefit in our continuing efforts against this important cause of morbidity and mortality.
