World Asthma Foundation

Mission

WAF’s mission is to empower the World Asthma community through education, collaboration, and advocacy.

Vision

The World Asthma Foundation sees a day where we can improve the quality of life for all Asthmatics. We do this by advocating for an improved understanding of the causes, diagnostic tools, methodologies, precision therapies, prevention, sustainability in healthcare, and one day a cure.

Strategy

The World Asthma Foundation pursues its mission to achieve the vision with a strategy to support the Asthma community with educational resources. The goal is to foster improved outcomes, better doctor-patient relationships, and support joint decision-making. In this way, Asthmatics can take charge of their own health. The main resources we use are podcasts, videos, bulletins and in-depth scientific analysis.

World Asthma Foundation Thrusts

The WAF mission has three main thrusts – Education for researchers, clinicians, those who suffer, and those who care for them; Collaboration with subject matter experts and healthcare organizations; and Advocacy to all.

WAF aims to define the causes of asthma, to assist in joining the dots to help create diagnostic tools, create precision therapies to help those affected, to advocate for changes in early health regimens for children to prevent new cases, and thereby reduce massive healthcare costs by reducing this pervasive disease to that caused naturally.

World Asthma Day

World Asthma Day is coming up, and the foundation supports the recognition of this pervasive debilitating disease. We hope to see you on social media. @worldasthmaday   #worldasthmaday
