National Asthma Week

How well controlled is your asthma?

September 1st - 7th marks National Asthma Week around the nation; a week when the Asthma Foundations of Australia ask the community to think about asthma and how it impacts on Australians. It is also the official start of Spring which is a notoriously difficult time of year for asthma sufferers.

With over two million Australians living with asthma, National Asthma Week is the perfect time for people with asthma to reassess how well controlled their asthma actually is.
