Summary
Organized by the Global Initiative for Asthma to improve asthma awareness and care around the world.

The Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) has decided the World Asthma Day takes place on the first Tuesday of May.

The first World Asthma Day, in 1998, was celebrated in more than 35 countries in conjunction with the first World Asthma Meeting held in Barcelona, Spain. Participation has increased with each World Asthma Day held since then, and the day has become one of the world’s most important asthma awareness and education events.

An annual event is organised by the Global Initiative for Asthma.
