Description

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a major cause of chronic morbidity and mortality throughout the world. Many people suffer from this disease for years and die prematurely from it or its complications. COPD is currently the fourth leading cause of death in the world 1, and further increases in its prevalence and mortality can be predicted in the coming decades 2. A unified international effort is needed to reverse these trends.
The Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease ( GOLD ) is conducted in collaboration with the US National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Its goals are to increase awareness of COPD and decrease morbidity and mortality from the disease. GOLD aims to improve prevention and management of COPD through a concerted worldwide effort of people involved in all facets of health care and health care policy, and to encourage a renewed research interest in this highly prevalent disease.
