Why do we need an Asthma Revolution?

Asthma is responsible for a substantial burden of disease worldwide [1].

Around the world, 9−20% of patients with mild asthma experience asthma exacerbations annually [3−5] and in a study of 1,277 patients with mild asthma using a short-acting β2-agonist (SABA) as-needed, nearly 1 in 8 experienced a severe exacerbation over the course of a year [3].

Many patients with asthma do not have over the course of a year adequate control of their symptoms, risking preventable asthma attacks that result in significant physical and emotional burden and can be life threatening [6,7].

Patients of all ages, with asthma of all severities, are at risk of asthma attacks, including those with mild asthma and those who consider their asthma to be controlled [3−6,8].

The Asthma Revolution is here

The Asthma Revolution is a growing online community connecting you with other healthcare professionals who share a vision of transforming asthma care.

Asthma care is changing.

Look out for the Asthma Revolution in your country, and join to be a part of the change.
