At least one person in New Zealand dies every week from asthma. Asthma is the leading cause of hospitalisation for children in New Zealand, and every year - 550,000 school days are lost. The severity of asthma can be reduced with sufficient support, advice, and education along with the appropriate medication. COPD is the 4th leading cause of death in New Zealand.
Asthma NZ have been providing education, training and support for 48 years. Our nurses are in the community supporting families and individuals in their homes, at school, in workplaces and on sports fields.
We have nurses in Auckland, Rotorua and Wellington.
Asthma is brushed aside by too many people. Poor breathing affects everything aspect of life. In fact nothing else matters when you can't breathe.
