World Asthma Day

Asthma is a common inflammatory condition of the lungs which constricts the airways and produces extra mucus. The condition makes it difficult for people to breathe and leads to shortness of breath. World Asthma Day is an event that takes place on the first Tuesday of May every year. It is an annual event organized by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) and aims to improve asthma awareness and care worldwide. The theme for World Asthma Day 2018 is "Never too early, never too late. It''s always the right time to address airways disease".
