Asthma Week 1 - 7 September

Busting asthma myths. Get the facts.

AA NAW_Detective

 

This Asthma Week, we’re busting the myths by stating the facts. 

Asthma is a condition that affects most Australians, 2/3rds in fact! Despite this, there are many misconceptions about this chronic disease.

We want everyone in the community to know about asthma, good asthma control and prevention. 

We want everyone in the community to be empowered to take steps to prevent and treat their asthma and to educate others. 

But we can’t do it alone. 

This Asthma Week, Busting Asthma Myths focuses on five facts about asthma along with new data on Australians perceptions and misperceptions about asthma.

 Data sourced from an online omnibus survey between 21 and 24 June 2018.
