Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) Launches 17th Annual “Global Asbestos Awareness Week” April 1-7, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES, March 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) Launches 17th Annual “Global Asbestos Awareness Week” April 1-7, 2021

As COVID-19 puts asbestos-disease patients at a heightened risk, asbestos education is more important than ever.

The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO), an independent non-profit dedicated to preventing asbestos exposure and eliminating all asbestos-caused diseases, today announces the launch of the 17th Annual “Global Asbestos Awareness Week” April 1-7, 2021.

Global Asbestos Awareness Week is dedicated to education, awareness and prevention. Each day features educational resources from leading organizations and experts, videos, and asbestos victims’ stories. Most materials are translated into five different languages (Spanish, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Hindi) to make the week a global education opportunity. The week culminates on April 7th with a virtual worldwide candlelight vigil.

Building on strength and collaboration between our partners, this year’s Global Asbestos Awareness Week will focus on:
Banning the mining, manufacturing, and use of asbestos
Preventing asbestos exposure
Increasing compliance and enforcement of existing laws and regulations
Strengthening international partnerships

“We are excited to bring our educational messages to a global audience. COVID-19 has made the world an even more dangerous place for those who suffer from an asbestos-caused disease, and it is more important than ever before that people understand the dangers of asbestos and how to prevent exposure in homes, schools, workplaces, and on consumer shelves,” said Linda Reinstein, mesothelioma widow and ADAO co-founder.

“The simple truth is asbestos kills. Asbestos is a known human carcinogen and there is no safe level of exposure. While promising research continues, prevention remains the only cure. Nearly 70 countries have banned asbestos, yet the U.S. allows for imports and use to continue,” Reinstein explained.

During the 20th century, asbestos was widely used in construction, shipbuilding, and the automotive industry. Though many nations have asbestos bans, the United States is not one of them. And without a complete ban on this carcinogen, asbestos remains legal and lethal in many countries around the world. Globally, over 200,000 people die each year from preventable asbestos-caused diseases.
