dc.description.abstractChronic obstructive pulmonary disease is the third leading cause of death in South Carolina and affects approximately 15 percent of the adult population. Although tobacco cessation and avoidance are slowly advancing in South Carolina, 20 percent of COPD occurs in non-smokers, and this percentage will likely increase in the coming years. Therefore, a strategic plan must include other initiatives in addition to smoking cessation. This document was developed by a multidisciplinary group of health care providers, public health practitioners, and patients, as such a combined approach is imperative to target this disease.
