Asthma: The Wisconsin Asthma Coalition
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) works with the Children’s Health Alliance of Wisconsin to coordinate activities of the Wisconsin Asthma Coalition. The coalition, which formed in 2001, is made up of close to 200 people who work to foster partnerships that will:
- Improve asthma management.
- Enhance quality of life.
- Reduce disparities.
- Prevent asthma-related deaths.
Visit the Wisconsin Asthma Coalition website for more information on how to join.
DHS partnership with the Wisconsin Asthma Coalition
DHS provides funding from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) to the Children’s Health Alliance of Wisconsin to finance the coalition’s work. The funds also cover work to carry out the Wisconsin Asthma Plan 2021—2025, which outlines ways Wisconsin can improve asthma outcomes.
DHS staff serve on the coalition’s Advisory Team and work groups. They also help evaluate the coalition’s work.
