The 2nd International Asthma and Sport Academy (14st – 18th October 2013)

offers a unique opportunity to become well informed on the very important and very sensitive relation between one of the highly incidental non-communicable chronic diseases – asthma – and one of the basic human needs – regular and appropriate physical activity.

The work of the International Asthma and Sport Academy (IASA) is based on the following pillars, which are proportionally represented throughout the programme:

  • scientific results on the benefits of physical activity for patients with asthma;
  • ten years of field experience on the part of the Asthma and Sport Organization;
  • integrative patient-centred health care;
  • patients’ responsibility for actively participating in disease management;
  • support from the world’s top experts on various asthma topics.
