Asthma

Asthma is a preventable health issue in the United States and across the globe—impacting adults and children, and resulting in acute and severe health threats, missed school and job absenteeism, and an increase in healthcare costs. The Public Health Institute tracks data and advances strategies to reduce and prevent asthma through a broad and comprehensive approach that includes policy change, clinical management, and environmental protection. Our work brings together diverse partners—such as public health and community-based organizations, schools, medical providers, and environmental health and justice groups—to join forces in reducing the burden of asthma, with a focus on communities inequitably impacted.
