Why this manual

While researching for what should be the campaign for World Asthma Day 2018, we stumbled upon the issue of asthma management in schools. Though there is a lot of content available which covers asthma basics, there is hardly any content available on asthma management in schools. With an increasing number of children with asthmatic tendency in India, such information becomes all the more important. We released a short video on asthma management in schools on World Asthma Day and were overwhelmed by the response. When we further interacted with school teachers & management, they all shared their concern about this problem and the necessity for a standardized comprehensive material. This gave birth to the idea of Asthma Manual for Schools. I’ve had asthmatic tendency in school and it was proactive measures taken with the support of friends, teachers, school support system and parents which helped me lead a normal life and never be afraid of an asthma emergency. This manual is a compilation of simple, easy to understand information to know about childhood asthma and the best practices that schools can implement to provide a safe and supportive environment for the children.

Testimonials

“The “Asthma Manual for Schools” provided by the Lung Care Foundation to the B.E.S.T school members is a wonderful initiative to create an Asthma supportive environment in schools thereby ensuring the health and safety of every child. It provides detailed information on Asthma, its triggers, emergency medical care, myths, Asthma Policy for schools, Asthma checklist and Emergency Response Plan for Asthma attack. The manual details have been shared with B.E.S.T club student volunteers and awareness is being spread in the classrooms amongst the student, teachers and medical staff. There is an urgent need for spreading this information to the parent community, teachers, school administration and management for its effective implementation. More copies of this manual be made available to the member schools for maintaining healthy school environment, and for greater dissemination of Asthma awareness amongst all stake holders.”

“Deterioting air owing to excessive human activity is an area of concern. In this content we welcome and appreciate this initiative taken by the best club to sensitize students about it. As a fall out of poor air we are battling serious diseases like Asthma. People lack adequate awareness regarding it. Hence such manuals will help sensitize children, parents and society at large enabling better prevention.”

“Asthma is a common problem in children now-a-days leading to absentism & retarded growth. A positive and pro-active attitude of all is required to cope up with it. Schools need to know and prepare strategic steps in cases of emergency and even otherwise. The manual is a step-by step guide to Asthma prevention and control. Most importantly, alongwith to do steps, there is also a list of what NOT to do. lt is a serious issue and needs both dedication & sensitivity to deal with. We thank the Lung Care Foundation for making us a part of asthma awareness drive and for providing us a copy of the asthma manual for reference and implementation of action Plan.”

Leaders of 193 countries created a plan called the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). A set of 17 goals imagine a future to ensure good health and well-being for all and to save us from the worst effects of climate change. Air pollution in India has assumed a dangerous proportion. The vulnerable school going children are the worst sufferers. The immune system stunting, infant mortality and the development of asthma and atopy are increasing with air pollution. The asthma manual for schools is a must-read primer for all those who care for the children particularly teachers, parents, school administration and management. I am delighted to learn that the manual will now be available in 12 Indian languages.
