Asthma Australia is the nation’s peak asthma body and everything we do is dedicated to improving the lives of over 2.7 million Australians who live with asthma.
Asthma Australia is a for-purpose, consumer organisation which has been improving the lives of people with asthma since 1962. Asthma is an inflammatory condition of the airways, restricting airflow and can be fatal. There is no cure, but most people with asthma can experience good control. We operate across Australia, working in partnership with our sister organisations in Western Australia and the Northern Territory. OUR PURPOSE Our purpose is to help people breathe better so they can live freely. Through our carefully considered approach, we work to drive better, measurable outcomes for you and the 2.7 million Australians living with asthma. We work with people living with asthma, their families, communities, governments and policy makers and a network of partners across the health, social services and environment sectors to drive meaningful and significant change. OUR VISION Our vision is to ensure no one experiences a life restricted by asthma. We are committed to halving the number of avoidable asthma-related hospitalisations by 2030. We know this will have a significant impact on thousands of Australians, their families and our healthcare system, with data showing 80 per cent of all asthma hospitalisations are avoidable. We are also dedicated to reducing the burden of the disease, which is likely to grow with the increase in climate-related events like bushfires. Asthma already costs Australians about $2.3 billion each year through the impact on the healthcare system and productivity losses. A core part of our vision is also to improve the lives of the one in nine Australians living with asthma to support you every day where you live, learn, work and play.
