The next World Asthma Day 2017, will be held on May 2, 2017
WAD is being organized by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA), a collaborative project of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (US).
World Asthma Day is organized by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) in collaboration with health care groups and asthma educators to raise awareness about asthma and improve asthma care throughout the world. This year the GINA introduces a new theme "Asthma: Best Air, Better Breathe" to sensitize us all that we must protect the environment, ensuring a cleaner and contaminant-free air.
Each year GINA chooses a theme and organizes preparation and distribution of World Asthma Day materials and resources. World Asthma Day activities are organized in each country by health care professionals, educators, and members of the public who want to help reduce the burden of asthma. Since 2011 the theme of World Asthma Day has been "You Can Control Your Asthma".
This positive theme builds on the focus on asthma control, as well as the emphasis on asthma control set out in the recently released 2009 version of the GINA Workhosp (an international cornerstone in the asthma guideline documents).
At the GINA website you can find a lot of materials to prepare a great WAD and you can sign up for the WAD eNewsletter, etc.
Forthcoming WAD: May 1, 2018
