[Call to register] Webinar in lead up to World Asthma Day

[Watch webinar recording] [Listen or download this audio podcast] Please be welcome to join us in this special webinar in lead up to 2017 World Asthma Day. People with asthma can live normal lives if their asthma is managed properly. But low awareness, health systems challenges and inaccessible asthma care are among the major factors that contribute towards poor management of asthma, adding to avoidable emergency hospitalization at times too.


Asthma affects more than 300 million people worldwide. Although asthma cannot be cured, it can be treated and controlled. Good asthma control means no, or very minimal, symptoms, and a low risk of asthma attacks or other poor outcomes. More importantly, good asthma control means, a person can live life normally! 

Governments of over 190 countries globally have committed to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, one of which is to reduce premature mortality due to non-communicable diseases (NCDs), asthma being one of them.
