Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow and swell and may produce extra mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, a whistling sound (wheezing) when you breathe out, and shortness of breath.

This online Asthma Awareness training course aims to develop knowledge of causes, signs, and symptoms of asthma, how to prevent them, as well as to understand how asthma impacts a person’s daily life.
