More time for life

Improving lives is at the heart of the Philips mission.          

We take our responsibility and commitment towards building a healthy society seriously by developing meaningful innovation that can help people manage COPD and ultimately breathe easier.

 

But people can’t find solutions for a problem they don’t know they have or benefit from solutions they don’t know exist.

 

At Philips, we understand our commitment to making lives better for COPD patients starts with education.

COPD is estimated to affect more than 251 million people worldwide1 as the fourth leading cause of death, and is becoming more prevalent every day2.

 

But through education, engagement, and empowerment we can help those affected by the disease live a fulfilling life.
