Research has revolutionised the lives of people with asthma


Asthma Week 2019 

Asthma Week is Australia’s pinnacle awareness raising week for asthma held annually from 1-7 September.

This is our week to put a spotlight on asthma - in your home, in your community, in the clinical setting and ensure it remains a national health priority.

Asthma Week 2019 is themed Asthma in Disguise

Find it hard to breathe in Spring?  It may actually be asthma in disguise. 

There are many symptoms that could be masking your asthma in spring which is unnecessarily causing you to suffer.   

Asthma and hay fever affect over 2 million Australians and hay fever impacts every 1 in 5 people. It makes asthma much harder to control and frankly, it can get in the way.  

Asthma Australia is releasing helpful information each day during Asthma Week to help Aussies unmask the dreaded sneeze’n wheeze for a happier and healthier spring.   

To get involved 

We'll be releasing Asthma Week posters and content from August 26. Email us if you would like to receive our collateral for Asthma Week 2019. 

For health professionals

If you’re a Pharmacist or General Practitioner, this year we’re helping you to determine if hay fever symptoms are disguising asthma in your patients, and providing you with services and resources to help your patients manage it. Sign up to Asthma Connect to receive your pack.
