World Asthma Day is organised by the Global Initiative for Asthma, (GINA) a World Health Organization collaborative organisation founded in 1993.
World Asthma Day is an event held each May to improve awareness of asthma and care around the world. WHO recognises that asthma is of major public health importance.
The theme for this year’s World Asthma Day is “Uncovering Asthma Misconceptions” to address common myths and misconceptions about asthma.
Dami Jaiyesimi, our Health Promotion Manager, chats with Professor Steve Turner, Consultant Paediatrician, NHS Grampian to debunk common myths about asthma in children and share the facts to help parents/carers of children with asthma.
