Promoting good asthma care locally, regionally and around the world

The National Asthma Council Australia has a well-established international reputation and, as asthma prevalence increases, countries in Asia and the Pacific have looked to the organisation for advice on strategic planning, development of treatment guidelines, health professional education, consumer involvement, and the development of organisations based on the Australian model.

NAC is a founding member of the International Primary Care Respiratory Group and was asked to form the GP Asia Pacific Respiratory Board, which focuses on primary care respiratory health management in this region. NAC also played a key role in the successful phase-out of CFC-containing inhalers in Australia in partnership with the Australian Government Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage & the Arts, and with other stakeholders.
