Led from The University of Auckland since 2012, the Global Asthma Network researches and campaigns globally to combat asthma, continuing the work of the internationally acclaimed 20 year ISAAC research programme. The Global Asthma Network aims to reduce the suffering that affects at least 334 million people of all ages in all parts of the world, to reduce the economic burden, estimated at 19 billion Euros in 2011 for Europe alone, and to prevent avoidable asthma deaths and suffering that are still occurring due to inappropriate management of asthma. Although asthma knowledge has increased, there are still significant gaps in the data and the Global Asthma Network is working towards closing these. The Global Asthma Report was published in October 2014 by the Global Asthma Network.
