World Lung Foundation
The Acute Respiratory Infections Atlas
New York, New York
Based on the success of its Tobacco Atlas for the American Cancer Society, the World Lung Foundation in New York City commissioned Bookhouse to develop the Lung Atlas that addressed the global epidemic of lung disease. Using scientific research and graphics, the Atlas explored topics such as infant mortality and tuberculosis as well asthma and child lung health. It was then translated into multiple languages and distributed worldwide.
With this Atlas, the World Lung Foundation takes an important step to inform and empower policymakers, journalists, and other public health advocates. WLF is pleased to introduce this Atlas. . . . Through global commitment and partnerships, we can dramatically reduce the toll of acute respiratory infections.
