Although GINA will not be actively promoting World Asthma Day this time to focus solely on coronavirus pandemic, it has shared a theme for some “asthma advocates” who wish to conduct virtual World Asthma Day events. A letter addressed to the “dear friends of GINA” added that the body will be sharing a plan of celebrating World Asthma Day “when time seems appropriate”.

The theme for 2020 is ‘Enough Asthma Deaths’
