LAM Awareness

The ASB Trust funded programme of LAM Awareness aimed at General Practitoners in the Auckland region is underway.

The June issue of Pro Care’s magazine “ProGRAM” has an article about the awareness programme and information packs are being be distributed to GP’s in the Auckland region over the next 6 months.

The LAM Trust is grateful to the ASB Trust for their decision to fund this important education initiative.

New figures from the American LAM Foundation now suggest that the worldwide incidence of LAM is approx 4-5 women per million population – currently in New Zealand there are 13 women registered with the LAM Trust and in Australia new figures put the number of women registerd with LAM Australia at 50.

The increased numbers per head of population in Australasia are likely to be as a result of ongoing awareness programmes in each of our countries.
