GINA Report, Global Strategy for Asthma Management and Prevention

Please reference this document as follows: From the Global Strategy for Asthma Management and Prevention, Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) 2011. Available from:

Asthma is a serious global health problem. People of all ages in countries throughout the world are affected by this chronic airway disorder that, when uncontrolled, can place severe limits on daily life and is sometimes fatal. The prevalence of asthma is increasing in most countries, especially among children. Asthma is a significant burden, not only in terms of health care costs but also of lost productivity and reduced participation in family life.

GINA’s Global Strategy for Asthma Management and Prevention presents a comprehensive plan to manage asthma with the goal of reducing chronic disability and premature deaths while allowing patients with asthma to lead productive and fulfilling lives.

GINA is one of the founding participants in the World Health Organization’s  Global Alliance Against Chronic Respiratory Diseases (GARD).

The goal of this effort is to improve collaboration between already existing governmental and non-governmental programs against chronic respiratory diseases. Improved coordination will help use resources efficiently and avoid duplication of efforts.

Ultimately, the participants will develop a comprehensive global approach to the prevention and control of chronic respiratory diseases, with a special emphasis on developing countries.

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
