The mission of the U.S. COPD Coalition is to improve awareness and care of patients with COPD while supporting the search for a cure.
The USCC has several goals:
- Educate key audiences and lawmakers on the importance of improving prevention and detection of COPD, the need for additional research aimed at better understanding COPD and the need for new approaches to prevention and treatment;
- Promote COPD awareness and education through its role as a resource for programs and constituents of its member organizations and partners;
- Provide a strong and unified advocacy voice to support policies and regulations important to the COPD Community;
- Aspire to reach undiagnosed patients with information about COPD and improve quality of life for all those impacted by COPD.
