However, several gaps exist in the overall asthma care such as inequity in health care access across varied socioeconomic, ethnic, and age groups, lack of proper communication and education to the public, poor understanding of treatments usages like inhalers and such devices.
The 2022 theme for World Asthma Day (chosen by GINA) is ‘Closing Gaps in Asthma Care’. This year’s theme revolves around curbing down the sufferings and costs posed by uncontrolled asthma.
The campaign also invites international respiratory communities for collaborative care towards patients and implements innovative solutions on a global scale. The American Thoracic Society provides fact sheets for patients on treatment strategies for asthma and other respiratory disorders.
Several other organizations like The Forum of International Respiratory Societies (FIRS a world’s leading international respiratory society) host campaign activities to help augment the treatment access to lung health worldwide.
Plan your interactive activities to spread the word on Asthma and close the existing care gaps in asthma this year!
