The next World Asthma Day was held on May 1, 2012.
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
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.
The theme of World Asthma Day 2011 was "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).
Besides, GINA launched the next phase of its "Campaign to Reduce Asthma Hospitalizations by 50% in 5 years"
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.
