Future Directions

With continued and increased funding, CDC will (1) work with state and local health departments and other partners to improve asthma tracking; (2) identify and develop population-based and individual solutions for controlling asthma; (3) help more partner organizations implement and evaluate programs to reduce the incidence of asthma attacks and the severity of asthma; and (4) build capacity of educational agencies and national non-government organizations to address asthma in schools.
