Is a day to put your lung health in action, an opportunity for us all to unite and promote better lung health globally with the focus on:
- Say no to tobacco
- Protect them through vaccination
- Breathe clean air
- Take regular physical exercise

About Asthma Malaysia
Asthma Malaysia is a non-profitable organization with the mission to serve as a credible resource on asthma, to raise awareness of best standards of care and to empower patients in the management of their asthma.
Asthma Malaysia’s vision is to be Malaysia’s leading portal for asthma with a view of creating more informed and empowered patients. We aim to ensure that asthma care in Malaysia is equal to the best in the world with a view to reducing the suffering and deaths associated with it.
We intend to evolve into an organisation that will proactively engage in research and promotional campaign to increase awareness of asthma in Malaysia.
