The Public Health Response to Asthma

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Asthma Control Program provides funding and technical support to state programs working toward helping the millions of Americans with asthma. Since 1999, CDC has been leading public health efforts to prevent costly asthma complications, create asthma-friendly environments, and empower people living with asthma with the tools they need to better manage their own health.

Program success stories and other information below reference a previous round of funding, which ended in 2014. To learn about currently funded state programs please visit
