The website of Global Alliance Against Respiratory Diseases (GARD) was launched 18 August by the World Health Organisation (WHO). The aim of the GARD is dedicated to fight against chronic respiratory diseases, to improve their care and education by sharing expertise, identifying problems, promoting solutions and coordinating activities. The members are internationally recognised organisations, institutions and agencies around the world who work on respiratory diseases. EFA is one of the founding members, and the only patient organisation member thus far. The Alliance is due to be launched at a later date. For more information, see WHO website. Source: WHO
