Public awareness

Along with the medical and paramedical fraternity, it is important to disseminate knowledge and awareness regarding asthma and COPD in the public masses. Both Asthma and COPD are associted with social stigma, non acceptance of diagnosis and most importantly non adherence to medication.

Chest Research Foundation has taken an innitiative in trying to get the masses well versed with Asthma and COPD. This will enable the patients and their relatives to deal with the Obstructive Airway Diseases better and ensure adequate adherence. This in turn will help reduce the mortality and morbidity caused due to these diseases.

SHWAAS is one such community education programme to create awareness regardingChildhood Asthma in the masses.
