Title: World Lung Foundation PDF
Url: http://www.worldlungfoundation.org/
Publisher: World Lung Foundation
Description: Lung diseases and related conditions are serious matters, and the World Lung Foundation is dedicated to improving lung health in all regions of the world. The Foundation works with a number of like-minded organizations, including the World Health Organization and the STOP TB Partnership. The Foundation is primarily concerned with researching lung ailments such as acute respiratory infections and tuberculosis, and they also have created a number of education and training programs for health personnel. The site contains six primary thematic areas, including "Tobacco", "TB and Lung Disease", and "Lung Health News". First-time visitors will want to look at the "Lung Health News" area first, as it contains a number of direct news links to recent articles that deal primarily with the worldwide fight against tuberculosis. The site also contains a rather helpful photo image library that includes images of air pollution, tobacco use, and asthma.
