IPF World Week 17-25th Sept 2016

Breath of Hope.

This week is IPF World Week, an opportunity to raise the profile of this life limiting condition ‘Locally’, ‘Nationally’ and ‘Internationally’.

The British Lung Foundation estimates that around 32,500 people are living with IPF in the UK alone.

Many of you may have planned local events to mark the week. The ILD-INN would love to hear your plans and event reports. Send us details and photos of your events and we will publish them on the website. Click here to contact us.
