Lung complaints after corona? Register with the Longfonds.
The Lung foundation Netherlands is committed to people who have permanent lung damage from corona. They want to use research to map out the long-term consequences of this virus on lung function, and to analyze solutions and the impact on daily life. They do this together with the Long Alliance Netherlands (LAN) in which more than thirty organizations are united in the field of prevention and care for people with lung diseases, including associations of lung patients, pulmonologists, general practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, paramedics, companies and the scientific organization of lung researchers (NRS).
Since their first call, a lot of hard work is being done to further prepare plans, as they noticed that there is a need for information, support, treatment and advice. For now and for later. Hopefully we can tell you more about this soon. In the meantime, this call stays open.
Have you been seriously ill due to corona and are you still experiencing lung complaints such as shortness of breath, decreased stamina, (chronic) coughing or other complaints that you think have to do with your lungs? In that case, of course, first contact your doctor and then register with the Lung foundation Netherlands via this form. They would love to hear your story and needs so that they can be there for you too
