Join the World Asthma Day 2023 Live Advocacy Discussion

To mark World Asthma Day (2 May 2023) the European Respiratory Society (ERS) and the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) are co-organising a dedicated advocacy session to discuss key updates to recommendations about asthma management for adults, adolescents and children.
