Asthma is a frequently occurring chronic disease among children and adolescents in the developed countries. It represents a major health problem for reasons of its prevalence and multiple repercussions for sufferers, their families and society at large.

The BBVA Foundation and the Fundación María José Jove have published this book in order to explain the facts about asthma and its treatment, in the belief that patient welfare will benefit from the existence of a better-informed public.
Its contents are the work of a team of experts in asthma education drawn from different care professions, including pediatric allergists and pneumologists, primary care pediatricians and sports doctors.

The book offers a comprehensive, easy-to-use guide to the disease that combines rigorous information with carefully selected images. It is aimed at asthma patients and their families as well as teachers, carers, monitors, sports trainers and the interested public.
