Asthma Foundations merger announcement
3rd December 2015
Asthma Foundations merger announcement The Asthma Foundation’s of Queensland and New South Wales have their intention to merge in the first half of 2016.
The Foundation’s provide asthma information, education, support and training to improve the well-being of every person with asthma in Queensland and New South Wales.
After considerable due diligence there was a recognition by the respective boards that a merger would improve efficiencies and, as a result, increase the level of services provided to the asthma community.
Members of both Foundation’s have voted to progress with the merger in 2016 at their recent Annual General Meetings.
The new merged entity will cover over 60% of the people with asthma in Australia, and will continue the existing commitment to asthma research.
Designated interim CEO of Asthma Foundation Queensland and Asthma Foundation NSW, Dr Peter Anderson said, “The merger will bring together over 100 years of combined knowledge and service, and a strong commitment to free the community from asthma”. The state Foundation’s will become one entity known as Asthma Foundation Queensland and New South Wales
