This week is Asthma Awareness Week. Did you know:
- Asthma is a condition that affects most Australians, two-thirds in fact! Despite this, there are many misconceptions about this chronic disease.
- We want everyone in the community to know about asthma, good asthma control and prevention.
- We want everyone in the community to be empowered to take steps to prevent and treat their asthma and to educate others.
- But we can’t do it alone.
This Asthma Week, Busting Asthma Myths focuses on five facts about asthma along with new data on Australians perceptions and misperceptions about asthma.
