    • Description:
      It is possible to live well with asthma. With appropriate care, including medical management and strategies to reduce environmental asthma triggers, students with asthma can control their symptoms so that the condition does not interfere with their educational activities. CDC’s National Asthma Control Program (NACP) works with state health departments, nonprofits, and many others to ensure that a comprehensive array of asthma services is available, and that people with asthma are able to access the services they need.

      Schools are one setting in which many asthma control services can be provided. For example, school nurses can help students use their medications correctly and can refer students to medical care. Other school personnel have roles in ensuring that students receive emergency care when needed; school staff can also take steps to improve the school environment so that students, as well as faculty and staff, are not exposed to harmful substances that can trigger their asthma symptoms.

      Strategies for Addressing Asthma in Schools provides a compilation of information and resources for implementing programs in schools. It was designed for staff in state health departments as they manage their asthma programs, but other individuals and groups with an interest in “asthma friendly schools” may also find it useful. None of the resources or programs included here are “one size fits all.” Every program should be tailored to the community’s context and culture and then evaluated to ensure that it is relevant, effective, and reaching the students experiencing the highest burden of asthma.
