World Asthma Day 2021

Today PATS, together with our partners in the Forum of International Respiratory Societies (FIRS), recognise World Asthma Day.

Asthma is one of the commonest non-communicable diseases in adults and in children globally and in Africa. In many African countries the prevalence is increasing in urban and rural areas. Yet under diagnosis and access to effective management with inhaled therapy remain challenging.

This year’s World Asthma Day theme is “Uncovering Asthma Misconceptions”. Read the statement for World Asthma Day here.
