World Asthma Day
World Asthma Day is organised on May 5 each year by the US-based Global Initiative for Asthma – a medical guidelines organisation that works to minimise asthma prevalence, morbidity and mortality. During this day, researchers, pharmacists, pulmonologists and other stakeholders come together to discuss the global prevalence of asthma. The theme for this year is “Uncovering Asthma Misconceptions”. It focuses on common myths and misconceptions regarding asthma.
