MORE MATTERS WITH COPD is a campaign that offers information about Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD, a common, progressive, and debilitating lung disease characterized by persistent airflow limitation that makes it difficult to breathe. More than 12 million people in the US have been diagnosed with COPD, and an additional 12 million are estimated to have COPD but not know it.

COPD symptoms, like shortness of breath and persistent cough, may be mild at first but worsen over time. There may be times when a patient's COPD symptoms "flare up"; flare-ups are also known as "exacerbations". Exacerbations are common, and most COPD patients will eventually have one. Staying as healthy as possible, as well as recognizing and addressing early warning signs of a flare-up may reduce exacerbations.

The campaign aims to provide people living with this condition and their caregivers what they want MORE of: Education about COPD, helpful resources, and the support needed to help them manage the disease. In fact, a recent survey found:
MORE than half of COPD patients are looking for MORE disease information and support.
Just over half of COPD patients on medication are satisfied with their treatment, suggesting that nearly half of patients may be looking for MORE treatment options or information on treatments.
COPD patients experience dyspnea (breathlessness) MORE than other symptoms. Having MORE treatment options, education, and support could help these patients manage their disease.
People living with COPD are MORE likely than the overall US adult population to have regular contact with their doctors as the best way to avoid illness.
MORE than one-third of COPD patients don’t adhere to taking their medicine. MORE education and support may help with adherence and disease management for these patients.
