Welcome to the latest edition of the AECI newsletter
Newsletter May 2024
Dear Member

World No Tobacco Day is observed annually on 31 May and aims to raise awareness about the health risks associated with tobacco use. If you’re a smoker, quitting smoking can significantly improve your overall health and help you manage chronic conditions better.

In this month’s edition, we focus on two specific lung conditions that can be improved by quitting smoking: asthma and COPD. We highlight the differences between these two conditions and offer guidance on managing them so you can breathe a little easier.

Also featured this month:
  • Hypertension: the silent killer  
  • A guide to Type 1 diabetes  

Remember to keep making those small changes that add up!
