Building a stronger voice for IPF

IPF World Video


on-line the video
of the
IPF World Week!

 Share and spread the video of IPF World Week 2013. It was shot in Croatia during a meeting of the associations active in the field of suffering from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and in Italy, Modena. People who participated in the campaign are patients, family members, physicians, medical students, all convinced that sharing is the shortest way to get effective goals.
