The World Asthma Day (WAD) organized by GINA (the Global Initiative for Asthma) every first Tuesday in May raises awareness, care and support for those affected by asthma.
Established in 1998, the first World Asthma Day was celebrated in over 35 countries to coincide with the first World Asthma Meeting (WAM) in Barcelona, Spain. Since then, event’s recognition and participation have grown to allow this day to become the world’s most important asthma awareness and education event.
Every year, GINA set a theme to provide a focus for activities around the world. The theme of 2019 is “STOP for Asthma”. The aim is to aware people with asthma of the way to reduce the burden of asthma.
