Burden of COPD

What does an ageing population mean for the future burden of COPD in Canada?

The prevalence of COPD and consequently its societal burden is on the rise. Health economists have used predictive models to project the cost of diagnosed COPD over the next two decades. The Burden of COPD web app, developed with Ainsleigh Hill, provides an interactive interface that helps policy makers and members of the public interact with the results of the simulation model.
