  • TARIPH Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Symposium
     
    Date: 4 December 2019 

    COPD is a major cause of morbidity and is the third leading cause of death worldwide. It is highly prevalent in older adults and with Singapore’s older population expected to double by 2030, its economic and social burden on healthcare system might increase. With the objective to address these impending issues, the local medical and research communities came together at the recent TARIPH COPD symposium to discuss the latest COPD developments and its effects, and to share experiences gained from COPD care programmes as well as improving care for COPD patients. More than 65 healthcare professionals, researchers and industry partners with an interest in COPD research and clinical care attended the Symposium.
