Organized by the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD), World Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Day takes place on 17th November, which aims to raise public awareness of COPD.

In Asia, COPD causes premature deaths and avoidable disabilities. The map shows the estimated burden of COPD in 2004, expressed as age standardized disability-adjusted life year (DALY). As depicted by graduated colours, population in Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Kazakhstan, India and China are losing the greatest number of life years as a result of COPD. The cigarette and fire symbols indicate countries with a high prevalence of tobacco use in adults and the use of solid fuels respectively. Cigarette smoking and extensive use of solid fuels have been shown to be associated with the heavy burden of COPD.

Data for this map were obtained from World Health Organization.

每年11月17日是由全球慢性阻塞性肺病倡議組織舉辦的世界慢性阻塞性肺病日,旨在提高公眾對此疾病的關注。

慢性阻塞性肺病(慢阻肺病)是導致亞洲區內過早死亡及呼吸障礙的原因之一。地圖以年齡標準化殘疾調整生命年顯示出2004年亞洲各國因慢阻肺病帶來的估計疾病負擔。依圖中顏色所示,吉爾吉斯、老撾、哈薩克、印度及中國的國民是亞洲區內因慢阻肺病損失最多生命年的人口。另外,香煙符號及火焰符號分別顯示高成人吸煙率及高固體燃料使用國家。研究顯示,吸煙及廣泛使用固體燃料均與沉重的慢阻肺病負擔相關。
