The Australian Lung Foundation promotes understanding, management and relief of lung disease. It has over 100 patient support groups in metropolitan and regional areas of all the states and territories. For patients and carers the Foundation produces a range of fact sheets and illustrations, written in non-scientific language, about respiratory diseases and lung health. These fact sheets can be ordered or downloaded from the website, which also contains lists of pulmonary rehabilitation programs, internet support groups, links to further information, and materials for healthcare professionals.
