Yesterday 6th May marked as World Asthma Day, a day organized by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) to bring more focus on Asthma and this year’s theme is “You Can Control Your Asthma”. This event is a partnership encompassing healthcare groups and asthma educators to elevate awareness about asthma and promote increased asthma care globally.

Scientists who specialize in the study and development of asthma treatments consider asthma control as having two main components: control of symptoms and managing of future risks. So the more information that is available to health care organizations and the public in general, the better.

GINA released yesterday, a new, revised version of the Global Strategy for Asthma Management and Prevention.

Some of the events taking place on 6th May include musical concerts from performers with asthma playing woodwind and brass instruments, awards for artwork, athletic contests and inspirational stories.

To better promote education about asthma, clinics and health fairs to provide information about maintaining asthma control.
