AUSTRALIA'S #1 ONLINE CPD EDUCATION PLATFORM

Asthma Australia is a for-purpose, consumer organisation improving the lives of people with asthma.

We believe the best way do this is through education and training. So that’s what we do.

1800 ASTHMA assists thousands of people every year guiding people with asthma to manage their lifelong disease in the best way possible.

Our one to one COACH program helps people with asthma achieve better control of their condition.

We educate the community, education sector and health professionals in what to do when someone has an asthma flare-up or an asthma attack.

We want to cure asthma forever, so we support Australian cutting-edge research for that, too.
