About WSD

World Spirometry Day aims to raise awareness of lung health and disease by promoting spirometry, a simple lung function test. Spirometry events are held around the world by medical professionals and are made available to anyone who wants to test their lungs.

World Spirometry Day (WSD) 2012 will take place during the Olympic year.


The campaign focuses on sport and the lungs, and resources are provided for all those organising testing events related to the Olympic theme.

WSD 2012 will launch on June 27 but testing will not be limited to this day alone. Participants are encouraged to capitalise on the Olympics and hold events in the run up to the games on July 27 and beyond.

 

Organised by the Forum of International Respiratory Societies (FIRS), in collaboration with the European Lung Foundation (ELF), WSD 2012 will build on the success of World Spirometry Day 2010, where more than 100,000 tests were performed.

Join the race for healthy lungs!
