National Asthma Week is held in the first week of September each year. In 2012, the theme is 'Be prepared'. One in 10 people in Australia have asthma, so it's important not only that they know what to do in an emergency, but also that the people around them are prepared.
Visit the myDr Asthma Centre for lots of information on asthma, what causes asthma attacks and how to treat and prevent them.
