Our Strategy

 

Educate Health Care Professionals:

offering expert training for effective care.    

 

Educate Individuals:

to help them take control of their

long term disease.

 

Educate Teachers, students

and  parents: establishing a

model of excellence in all schools.

If we can educate the children of this

generation we can have a major impact

on the next generation.

 

Educate the Community:

to raise awareness and understanding of best practice asthma care;  to be an advocate in the community for good air quality.

 

Provide Equipment:

to ensure optimal equipment is available to everyone with respiratory diseases.
