Improving Childhood Asthma Outcomes in the United States: A Blueprint for Policy Action

Synopsis

An estimated 5 million U.S. children have asthma. Much of the money spent on asthma is for high-cost health care services to treat acute periods of illness. May asthma attacks could be avoided--and much suffering prevented and many medical costs saved if more children received good-quality, ongoing asthma care and if the 11 policy recommendations presented in this report were implemented in a coordinated fashion. This report summarizes the findings of an effort funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation as part of the Pediatric Astham Initiative, whose purpose is to address current gaps in national childhood asthma care.
