Advocacy

Your voice for asthma

At Asthma Australia, we are the leading for-purpose consumer group advocating for people with asthma and the people who care for them. 

We work collaboratively with a range of stakeholders to achieve a better future for people with asthma: government, medical networks, researchers, industry, the private sector, consumers, people with asthma themselves and their carers.

For all those affected directly by this lifelong disease, we educate and train health professionals, the community and people with asthma.

It means we are always striving to achieve the best possible outcomes, investigating and researching how to improve the prevention of, and treatments for, asthma as we remain hopeful for a cure in the future.

We are engaged with our communities and thank our Professional Advisory Council and our Consumer Advisory Council for their input into our strategy. Our advocacy is diverse. 

We give expert advice to governments, health departments, medical facilities, and other affiliated health and community networks. We conduct reviews, research and analysis of priority issues and develop submissions into public policy to create communities where it easier for people to manage their asthma. And we lead campaigns for change if it is required.
