Controlling Asthma in American Cities Project
CDC has issued new findings on tailored strategies that help individuals and communities control asthma. The findings of the Controlling Asthma in American Cities Project (CAACP) can guide not only asthma-control programs, but also other comprehensive, community-based efforts. The publication, “It Takes a Community: Controlling Asthma in American Cities” is published as a special edition of the February issue of the Journal of Urban Health.
CAACP provided funding to seven inner-city sites to support the translation of scientific advances in the treatment of asthma into innovative, comprehensive approaches to improve asthma control among urban children up to 18 years of age in underserved communities with a high asthma burden.
