Asthma in France
There are 2.5 to 3 million asthmatics, including 1/4 children and adolescents. Still 7 people a day die of asthma while we have extremely effective treatments. Experts know that almost all these deaths would be avoided if asthma was detected and treatments followed.
Control your asthma!
Each year, a theme is chosen to celebrate World Asthma Day. In 2017, the theme is “Control your asthma, do not let it dominate you”.
