Respiratory Diseases

Respiratory diseases impose an immense worldwide health burden. Five of these diseases are among most common causes of severe illness and death worldwide.

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Asthma
  • Acute lower respiratory tract infections
  • Acute upper respiratory tract infections

65

Million people estimated to have moderate to severe COPD

334

Million people suffer from Asthma; the number is rising

$71

The facts are frightening.

 

  • COPD causes 3 million deaths each year, making it the third leading cause of death worldwide – and the numbers are increasing.
  • For decades, acute lower respiratory tract infections have been among the top three causes of death and disability among both children and adults.
  • It is estimated that lower respiratory tract infection causes nearly 4 million deaths annually and is a leading cause of death among children under 5 years old.
  • Acute lower respiratory tract infections in children predispose for chronic respiratory diseases later in life.
  • In 2015, 10.4 million people developed tuberculosis and 1.4 million people died from it.
  • The most common lethal neoplasm in the world is lung cancer, which kills 1.6 million people each year; and the numbers are growing.
  • More than 100 million people suffer from sleep-disordered breathing.
  • Millions live with pulmonary hypertension.
  • More than 50 million people struggle with occupational lung diseases.
