It is my pride privilege to be the ‘President’ of this prestigious society-Indian Chest Society (ICS). The aim of the society is to contribute towards betterment of ‘Pulmonary Medicine’ in India through bringing all the chest physicians of India on one platform. For the last 30 years Indian Chest Society (ICS) is doing the Herculean task of dissemination of knowledge on Respiratory Medicine amongst chest physicians for better patient care.
In developing countries respiratory diseases like tuberculosis, pneumonia, asthma, COPD, interstitial lung diseases, lung cancer and many more are responsible for sufferings, burden on family, and significant loss of man hours, school days and human lives every year.
Many of these diseases are preventable by improving nutrition,hygiene and sanitation, immunization, controlling pollution, smoking cessation and many other such measures. Increasing awareness about disease helps in early detection, proper treatment and prevention of many dreaded diseases to save many lives and prevents human sufferings.
‘Public Forum’ of ICS is a humble effort in this direction. On behalf of all the members of ICS, I convey my sincere thanks for taking interest in the contents of web pages & valuable suggestions.
I am hopeful of your encouragement through viewing the website and sending your valuable comments and queries.
