The Asthma Foundation WA is a community-based, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to helping people breathe better.
The Foundation was founded in 1964 from the personal concern of a group of dedicated people, brought together to consider how they might help people affected by asthma. Forty years on, the Asthma Foundation WA has established itself as a leading community organisation that funds local research into asthma and provides education and support services for people with asthma, their families and carers. In 2010, the Foundation undertook a new strategic direction and launched a new look. The membership programme was also redesigned to cater more for the individual needs of people with asthma.
