World Asthma Day is coming up on May 5 – ‘uncovering asthma misconceptions’.

Asthma is of global public health importance affecting more than 339 million people worldwide (including 2.7 million Australians).

Each year the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) holds World Asthma Day to bring global awareness to all people affected by asthma and the issues affecting them.  In support of World Asthma Day, Asthma Australia is uncovering the Great Aussie Asthma Myth alongside four global asthma misconceptions put forward by GINA.

To get involved, jump onto our Facebook page here before April 8 to comment on what asthma misconceptions affect you the most here in Australia.

Stay tuned, we’ll be announcing the Great Aussie Asthma Myth and how to raise awareness of it on World Asthma Day.
