Extract

The National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP) was initiated in March 1989 to address the growing problem of asthma in the United States. The NAEPP was charged to lead and coordinate the assessment of research advances and to identify their significance and usefulness in the prevention and treatment of asthma. An important role of the NAEPP is to bring federal agencies and voluntary and private-sector organizations together to evaluate current scientific findings and to develop a common foundation for applying research-based health information to professional, patient, and public audiences.
