About Pulmocare and Healthy Lungs

Staying true to our philosophy of ‘Extended Lifecare Beyond Boundaries’, Alkem launched Pulmocare – a division dedicated to enhance awareness, diagnosis and management for lung diseases. As per the Global Burden of Diseases data and other research; out of the nine crore patients suffering from lung diseases, only 1 crore has access to the right management of lung care in India. The causes of high lung disease burden are underutilization of diagnostic tools like spirometry, patient ignorance about the disease and delayed healthcare.

Pulmocare’s goal is to bridge this massive gap of accessibility to lung care through comprehensive education and awareness initiatives. Health loss leading to deaths or disability-adjusted life years (DALY’s) is something that can be managed effectively with proper care for lung health. Launch of Pulmocare is a step in that direction.

We believe healthy lungs are each one’s right. Based on the fact that chronic respiratory management requires 90% education and just 10% medication, we created ‘Healthy Lungs’, a website dedicated to enhancing awareness, busting myths, improving knowledge about inhalation techniques and motivating patients to adhere to the therapy.

Healthy Lungs is a comprehensive patient education and adherence programme that will work online and offline with various stakeholders to improve awareness, disseminate right knowledge and improve the overall quality of respiratory care in India.
