Today (May 5th) is World Asthma Day and this year’s theme is “You Can Control Your Asthma.”
60% of the estimated 3 million people in Canada living with asthma do not have their symptoms under control. With this is mind, the Asthma Society of Canada will observe World Asthma Day with several initiatives concerning control.
World Asthma Day is sanctioned by the United Nations and is coordinated by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA). Check out GINA’s website for a listing of Asthma Day events around world.
