Abstract

COPD is one of several chronic diseases that are becoming increasingly problematic worldwide. Low- and middle-income countries already shoulder much of the burden of COPD. So as health care team members take charge to help them to lead good quality of life by creating awareness regarding their condition. Thereby we can reduce the burden economically, physically and psychologically.
