NIH statement on World Asthma Day 2019 | National Institutes of Health

On World Asthma Day 2019, the National Institutes of Health stands with patients, families, advocates, researchers and health care professionals around the globe to raise awareness about this common chronic respiratory disease.

In 2016, asthma affected 26 million Americans and nearly 340 million people worldwide, according to the Global Burden of Disease study. The disease can profoundly affect quality of life and financial and emotional health and is a major cause of missed time from school and work. Severe asthma attacks may require emergency room visits and hospitalizations, and can be fatal.

Asthma flares result when the airways of the lungs become inflamed by a variety of triggers in the air, such as indoor pollutants and allergens from dust mites and mold, as well as outdoor air pollution. This inflammation narrows and obstructs the airways, causing symptoms like wheezing, coughing, chest tightness and difficulty breathing.

NIH-funded research has greatly increased knowledge of asthma and led to better treatment and prevention options. Implementing what we know in clinical and community settings, however, still needs urgent attention. Putting into practice proven strategies for asthma prevention, control and care not only will help reduce the burden of the disease, it also will help address health disparities that have resulted in asthma’s disproportionate impact on racial and ethnic minorities and families living at or below the poverty line.
