About the Asthma Program

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services has been conducting asthma surveillance activities since 1992 and asthma interventions since 1994.

Since 2001, the Wisconsin Asthma Program has expanded its activities under a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In 2003, the Wisconsin Asthma Plan was adopted to provide the blueprint for addressing asthma as a public health priority, and lists the prioritized goals, objectives, and activities recommended for statewide action to reduce the burden of asthma in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Asthma Program partners with the Wisconsin Asthma Coalition to accomplish the goals and activities in the Wisconsin Asthma Plan.
