The Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA UK) runs campaigns on issues relevant to people affected by pulmonary hypertension (PH).
This section provides more information about our current campaigns. You can find more information about our past campaigns in the campaign archive.
The Breathe Freely Airlines & Oxygen Campaign
Many people with lung conditions, such as PH, need oxygen therapy (supplementary oxygen) to help them breathe easier. This is because some people with PH have low levels of oxygen in their blood. Breathing difficulties faced by people with PH can become worse when flying. This is because the level of oxygen in aircraft cabins is lower than at ground level.
Unfortunately, many airlines charge for the use of supplementary oxygen on aircraft. This charge differs greatly, depending on the airline (check with your airline before you fly).
The Breathe Freely Airlines & Oxygen Campaign is supported by the PHA UK, the British Lung Foundation and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. It aims to:
- ensure all charges for supplementary oxygen are dropped by all airlines using UK airports
- ensure airlines allow passengers to bring their own supplementary oxygen.

PuckerUp4PH is a global campaign, created by the PHA UK, to improve awareness of PH. Over 29 PH organisations across the world are taking part in the campaign and asking people to ‘lend their lips’ to raise awareness of PH.
