Asthma Australia and member Foundations seek to eliminate asthma as a major cause of ill health and disruption within the community. They provide disease education, information, research, community advocacy and support to people with asthma and as well as their carers.
In 2017 GSK Australia supported the COACH Program Grant as part two of the grant from 2016. $130,000 in total was provided to Asthma Australia over two years (2016 – 2017) to develop and implement their COACH Program. $65,000 was provided to Asthma Australia in 2016 and $65,000 was provided in 2017.
The program helps people with poorly controlled asthma a coach to help them set goals and achieve better general health through telephone and SMS.
