everal FRESH AIR collaborators presented their first findings at the world’s largest gathering of respiratory specialists. Evelyn Brakema presented a poster about the beliefs and behaviours towards lung diseases, while Frederik van Gemert’s poster was about the implementation of a lung health awareness programmein Uganda. Finally, Job van Boven presented for a large audience about the health economic burden of chronic lung diseases in Uganda, Vietnam,Kyrgyzstan and Greece.

Besides presenting scientific work, members of the FRESH AIR team raised awareness about the project at specific networking booths managed by ELF, Kyrgyzstan and FRESH AIR itself–as well as at a special World Village session dedicated to chronic lung disease in Kyrgyzstan, hosted byTalant Sooronbaev.

During social events and networking meetings, FRESH AIR progress was discussed and new ideas were exchanged. All in all, it was a very successful meeting and we are already looking forward to next years’ Congress in Paris, France where we expect to present an even larger number of FRESH AIR abstracts!
