The Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) collaborates with health care groups and asthma educators world-wide to raise awareness about asthma, and celebrates World Asthma Day on the first Tuesday of May every year. The aim is to improve asthma awareness and care throughout the world, involving health care professionals, educators and members of the public who would be interested in volunteering such services.
The theme for World Asthma Day 2014 is "You Can Control Your Asthma", with a subtheme, "It's Time To Control Your Asthma". The activity organizers are further encouraged to complete the sentence, "It's time to...", as found relevant to their activity programmes and target audience.
The first World Asthma Day was conducted in 1998 in more than 35 countries, with the World Asthma Meeting centered in Barcelona, Spain. Ever since, this awareness day has seen increasing number of participating countries, and has become one of the most important asthma awareness and education events in the world.
The objective of the World Asthma Day celebrations is to create awareness of the disease, taking care of the sufferers, educating about preventive measures and management of the condition. The educators and researchers contribute towards this day by updating on the recent research and development in medical facilities and medicinal help for the disease.
