- Most of the 455,000 yearly asthma-related deaths occur in low and middle-income countries, where asthma is under-diagnosed and under-treated. 1
- GAAPP provides a platform to amplify the voice of the people living without proper access to asthma care.
For 2023 #WorldAsthmaDay, we continue and expand upon our previous campaign, Asthma Care Access: The Voice of the Uncared, which complements GINA´s official topic for, Asthma Care for all2.
GAAPP recorded 6 testimonials from patients, healthcare professionals, and a TV personality from Brazil, France, Gambia, India, and Peru, highlighting some of the most relevant challenges to accessing quality asthma care in their countries.
