Asthma is considered to affect more than 300 million people worldwide and is unfortunately responsible for an enormous human and socio- economic burden, in addition to still causing thousands of deaths yearly. Founded in 1954, the Global Asthma Association INTERASMA is an International Health Organization focused on providing a forum where asthma experts can provide educational outreach to Primary care physicians/providers, Pulmonologists and Allergologists /Clinical Immunologists in various regions of the world.
The organization accomplishes this mission by:
Supporting annual meetings to regions around the world so physicians can directly interact with national and International asthma experts and learn about cutting edge advancements in the management and treatment of asthma and related comorbidities.
Collaborating with the well-known Journal of Asthma, a renowned publication that focuses on research related to all aspects of asthma and associated conditions.
Providing a global network of asthma experts to whom clinicians that treat asthma can reach out to and ask questions of regarding difficult asthma cases.
Holding a bi-annual International “World Congress on Asthma” in various parts of the world.We would like to warmly thank those of you who continuously provided support to our association and participated in the past WCA’s.
Together, we can work to update knowledge and skills of health professionals to provide the best care to patients suffering from respiratory diseases.
We wish you a wonderful and rewarding year filled with success and happiness!
