World Asthma Day is an annual event organized by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) to improve asthma awareness and care around the world.
World Asthma Day 2011 will take place on Tuesday, May 3, 2011. The theme will be “You Can Control Your Asthma,” continuing the focus on the positive theme introduced for WAD 2007 and consistent with the emphasis on asthma control set out in the latest versions of the GINA guideline documents. In addition, on WAD 2011 GINA will launch the next phase of its campaign to reduce asthma hospitalizations 50% worldwide by 2015. This builds on the “You Can Control Your Asthma” theme, as better asthma control means fewer hospitalizations. www.HealingHopeTeamMedAlert.com
