Launched in July 2017, RESPIRE aims to reduce the impact and number of deaths caused by respiratory diseases in Asia in partnership with collaborators from Bangladesh, India, Malaysia and Pakistan.

Partners travelled from each of the four countries to share their thoughts on the respiratory health challenges in their nation and discuss which areas to focus our collective efforts on.

It was fantastic to have our experts gathered together, build our links and begin developing the priorities for RESPIRE.
