Indiana State Department of Health Asthma Program
Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease that affects over half a million children and adults living in Indiana. The mission of the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) Asthma Program is to reduce the burden of asthma in Indiana.
The Asthma Program works to implement activities in the State Asthma Plan. The State Asthma Plan guides the development and implementation of interventions that improve the health and quality of life of Hoosiers with asthma. The program also maintains a comprehensive surveillance system for the ongoing, systematic collection of asthma data. In addition to data collection, the system also allows for analysis and interpretation of asthma data, which is essential to the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the program.
