National Asthma Education Programme
The NAEP is a non-profit organization that aims to disseminate impartial information about asthma diagnosis and treatment to health professionals and the South African public. It is part of an international organization/drive which subscribes to management guidelines set out by GINA (Global Initiative for Asthma), SATS (South African Thoracic Society) and ALLSA (Allergy Society of Asthma). Its objectives are threefold:
- To raise awareness among patients, health professionals, and the public that asthma is a serious chronic disease
- To ensure that symptoms of asthma are recognized by patients, families, and the public, and that appropriate diagnosis is made by health professionals;
- To ensure effective control of asthma by encouraging a partnership among patients, physicians, and other health professionals, using appropriate, modern treatment and education programs.
