I’m Linda Reinstein, Co-Founder and President of the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO), an independent, non-profit in the United States dedicated to eliminating mesothelioma and other asbestos-caused diseases. I’m delighted and honored to have this opportunity to join you today and share the latest United States and global asbestos news, challenges, and progress, and collaborate with you all to protect the health of the public in Pakistan, the United States, and across the globe.
The primary influence on governments to ban asbestos comes from the voice of the public. Very rarely do people see a story on asbestos in the media, but when the public is educated and acts on the information, the greatest success is seen. The fate of hundreds relies on citizens to promote awareness and come together to demand all countries to ban the manufacture, trade and use of all types of asbestos and asbestos-containing products as soon as possible. Ultimately, what’s worth more – an inexpensive material or our lives?
