Lung Foundation Australia is the only charity and leading peak body of its kind in Australia that delivers life-changing research and programs that support and provide hope to people of all ages with a lung disease, and their families, at every stage of the journey.
Our aim is to ensure lung health is a priority for all, from promoting lung health and early diagnosis, to supporting people with lung disease and championing equitable access to treatment and care.
Our work is centred on the needs of those living with lung disease, and underpinned by the values of compassion, courage, respect and collaboration.
Our mission is to improve lung health and reduce the impact of lung disease for all Australians through five key areas:
Research: Driving world-class research into the causes, treatment and cure for lung diseases
Advocacy: Being a loud and passionate voice for people with lung disease and their needs
Support: Providing high quality information and support services that help people with lung disease achieve better health outcomes and improve their quality of life
Awareness: Raising community awareness of lung health, lung disease and the symptoms to look out for
Education: Providing evidence-based training and programs to support health professionals in the delivery of best practice clinical care.
We rely on the generosity of the community, corporate organisations and our industry partners to continue deliver our work.
