Purpose of celebrating World Asthma Day 2024

World Asthma Day is celebrated every year across the world on the first Tuesday in the month of May, which is this time on 7th May. (World Health Organization) According to WHO report, in the year 2019, about 4.5 lakh people died due to asthma worldwide. This day, which is very important from health point of view, is organized every year by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA), which also received the support of the World Health Organization in 1993. The purpose behind celebrating this day is to create awareness around the world about this respiratory disease and promote its prevention and care. Let us tell you on this occasion the purpose of celebrating it, this year’s theme and its history.

What is the purpose of celebrating this day?

Due to increasing pollution and bad lifestyle, people are becoming victims of asthma at an early age. According to the World Health Organization, people often ignore this respiratory disease and do not seek timely treatment. In such a situation, the purpose of celebrating this day is to increase awareness about asthma among the people, so that people suffering from asthma can get the right treatment and care all over the world.

What is World Asthma Day 2024 theme?

The theme of World Asthma Day 2024 has been kept by Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) as Asthma Education Empowers. On this day, talks are held with countries around the world to encourage and implement the development and implementation of asthma management programs and work is carried forward in this direction. Due to lack of information, many people believe that asthma spreads through touch, which is not true at all. In such a situation, for proper care of asthma patients, it is important to make everyone aware about this disease.

What is the history of World Asthma Day?

Celebrating this day started in the year 1998 and for the first time it was celebrated by the Global Initiative for Asthma in collaboration with the World Health Organization. In 1998 itself, more than 35 countries celebrated this day. Since then, we have been celebrating it every year on the first Tuesday of May with the aim of increasing awareness about respiratory diseases and spreading education about asthma across the world.
