National Asthma Week 1-7 September

The first week of September each year marks National Asthma Week and provides the opportunity to raise awareness of key issues that affect the lives of people with asthma in Australia.

Many people still do not manage their condition well, often relying on reliever medication when their symptoms play up. If you use the reliever more than two times each week it shows that you are not controlling your asthma well. The message for this year from Asthma Foundation is “Three or more is very poor. Take control!”.
