Description of the charities activities and outcomes
Asthma WA has been helping Western Australians breathe better for more than 55 years. More than 237,000 Western Australians have asthma and over 46,000 have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The impact of these respiratory conditions can be significant, and potentially life-threatening.

Asthma WA provides FREE individualised education and support to Western Australians with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and their carers, to improve health and wellbeing and decrease preventable emergency department presentations, hospitalisations and deaths. We aim to reduce the health, social and economic impacts of asthma and COPD through better management of these conditions, keeping people well in the community.

We also provide education and training in group settings for GPs, practice nurses, pharmacies, schools, sporting clubs, workplaces, child-care centres and prisons and advocate on behalf of our consumers to reduce complacency and stigma.

In 2019-2020 we provided education to 4,614 people with respiratory conditions and their carers.
