Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD): Partnership with Lung Foundation Australia

Menarini Australia has identified the treatment of respiratory disease and in particular Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) as an important area of need in our community.

In addition to identifying and pursuing new treatment options, Menarini Australia is a principal partner of the COPD National Program of Lung Foundation Australia. As part of this partnership the COPD National Program works across Australia to reduce the impact of COPD and improve outcomes for consumers, carers, families and the community.

It is our mutual goal as a Company Partner to maximise awareness of COPD as a public health issue and to uphold the ideals and principles supporting the COPD National Program.

Lung Foundation Australia and Menarini Australia partner together to provide travel grants to fund educational opportunities for clinicians to support them building expertise in the diagnosis and management of respiratory disease.

The travel grants are provided for:

  1. American Thoracic Society (ATS) Annual Congress
  2. European Respiratory Society (ERS) Annual Congress
  3. Asia Pacific Society of Respirology (APSR) Annual Congress
