Over 273,000 West Australians have asthma and 46,000 have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This leads to over 11,000 emergency department presentations and 15,000 hospitalisations each year. Many of these cases can be avoided with a greater understanding and management of peoples’ conditions.
Asthma WA supports more than 5,000 people each year across WA to better understand their asthma and COPD, improving their quality of life and reducing the possibility of life-threatening emergency.
We need your help to reach more people.
Thank you for supporting us today.
