It aims to influence national policy and services to help reduce the health and economic burden of lung disease, and to ensure equitable access to the best standards of respiratory care across the country. Further, it aims to work in a spirit of partnership and collaboration with all those who share our vision including patient organisations, government, the HSE, industry and academia.
