New alliance expected to result in better treatment access for patients

Philips is announcing its partnership with the Global Initiative for Chronic Lung Disease (GOLD) on World COPD Day (November 17, 2010). GOLD works with health care professionals and public health officials around the world to raise awareness of COPD as a public healt problem and to decrease morbidity and mortality from COPD through the implementation and evaluation of

effective programs for diagnosis and management.

 Philips shares with GOLD a commitment to improve COPD patients' access to treatment throughout the
world.  As part of this commitment, Philips recently  unveiled the new UltraFill home oxygen filling system in the US that allows respiratory patients a simpler way to manage their home oxygen system. The UltraFill
home oxygen filling system will be available soon in Europe.
