The mission of Allergy & Asthma Network is to end the needless death and suffering due to asthma, allergies, and related conditions through outreach, education, advocacy, and research.
Allergy & Asthma Network, founded in 1985, has grown into the nation’s leading nonprofit patient-centered network. We unite patients, families, healthcare professionals, industry partners, advocates, and government decision-makers to improve health and quality of life for the 60 million people living with allergies, asthma, and related conditions.
Our work is increasingly focused on achieving equitable and optimal health outcomes for adults and children living in underserved communities.
We have a volunteer network that provides support to patients, an award-winning magazine, a series of patient guides written so people can better manage their condition, and resources to support them – including an Asthma Storylines app and resources to help people afford your medications.
We provide printed and digital resources to give patients access to guidelines-based information, monthly webinars with national experts, continuing education for healthcare professionals, and tools to help patients work with their healthcare providers to make the best decisions for their health.
We empower stakeholders to impact public policy and get involved in advocating for asthma and allergy issues with their elected officials. Each year, we lead the way for an impactful advocacy day on Capitol Hill where patients and healthcare providers come together to visit their legislators and make their voices heard.
We support and conduct our own research to reduce suffering and death due to asthma and allergic diseases. We are committed to educating patients about ways they can get involved in research and helping researchers recruit patients as advisors or participants in studies. We collaborate with researchers on clinical research, health services research, health economics and outcomes research, patient-centered outcomes research, and other types of research. We connect people with clinical trials and work to have the patient voice heard in all aspects of allergy and respiratory care.
