Lung Foundation Australia is developing the first National Strategic Action Plan for Lung Conditions through funding from the Australian Government Department of Health.
This action plan will be developed in consultation with an Advisory Group and is due for submission in early December. It will influence future decision making and resource allocation for the next 2-5 years to improve the lives of all Australians through better lung health.
Lung Foundation Australia are inviting a wide range of individuals and organisations to be involved in the consultation process, including people with lung conditions or caring for someone with lung conditions, health professionals, research institutions, peak bodies, government and other relevant stakeholders and organisations.
To begin the consultation process, Lung Foundation Australia invites you to complete a survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/W8DG2J9
The survey will close on Sunday 12 August and a summary of the results will be published on Lung Foundation Australia’s website. This summary, combined with a report on the current state of lung health in Australia, will guide their Advisory Group in the development of a draft framework for the plan. This framework will be released for public comment and the feedback incorporated before a final draft is submitted to the Federal Government.
