Allergy & Asthma Network works to help Americans with asthma, allergies and related conditions at the federal, state and local level. Making sure the patient’s voice is heard in legislation and policy issues is an important part of the Network’s advocacy work. Advocates play a crucial role in raising awareness, educating policymakers and the general public, removing barriers to care and making issues widely known to make medical care and treatment more accessible and effective. One key advocacy initiative is to ensure people living with asthma disparities have equal access to high-quality and affordable care.
