What the programme supports

Friends of the Foundation is a sponsorship programme focused on supporting initiatives which address the following three key areas: 

  • Education and raising awareness – Prevention, education, management of asthma, and knowledge of what to do in an asthma emergency.
  • Supporting vulnerable communities – Providing resources and support to identified communities with increased rates of respiratory illness. Raising awareness of the link between unhealthy living conditions and rates of respiratory illness in New Zealand. Check out our Healthy Homes page.
  • Leading best practice – Providing research and resources to support healthcare professionals to deliver care for Kiwis with respiratory illness. We also ensure that this is of the highest standard through our health professional education programmes and events.

The need is great and is widespread across our communities. Find out how your organisation can get involved and become one of our valued partners – contact info@asthmaandrespiratory.org.nz
