World Asthma Day
Organizer: Global Initiative for Asthma
Date: 1 May 2018
World Asthma Day is focused on raising asthma awareness around the world. Studies have shown that the onset of asthma has been linked with exposure to air pollution. While children and babies are particularly vulnerable, air quality and the incidence of asthma are linked even in adolescence. Climate change may also worsen asthma as warmer days can create more air pollution. Controlling air pollution will help to reduce the onset of early life asthma, one of the many health co-benefits of action to reduce air pollution.
