World Asthma Day
World Asthma Day, celebrated on an annual basis on the first Tuesday of May, increases asthma awareness among the public worldwide, including precautions and preventions of asthma. This event is organized annually on an international level by the Global Initiative for Asthma in order to increase asthma awareness all around the world. World Asthma Day was first celebrated in 1998 by the Global Initiative for Asthma in more than 35 countries after its first “World Asthma Meeting” in Barcelona, Spain.
Asthma management requires collaborative efforts of patients, asthma caregivers, health professionals, community health groups and other health care systems globally.
