ERS Advocacy Council

Advocacy is a core pillar of ERS. The Society’s involvement in advocacy is co-ordinated via the ERS Advocacy Council.

About

Article I of the ERS Constitution outlines a key objective of ERS: to promote respiratory health in order to alleviate suffering from respiratory disease. The Advocacy Council plays an important role in this objective. The Council is constituted via the by-laws of ERS and is comprised of key leaders within the Society.

Objectives
  • Increase resources to manage patient and respiratory health problems; to research respiratory-related disorders; and to promote education for healthcare professionals in respiratory health.
  • Coordinate all matters pertaining to advocacy of the Tobacco Control Committee and the Environment and Health Committee.
  • Link with other organisations to promote awareness for respiratory disorders at national, EU and global level.
