As the trusted authority leading the attack against asthma, the NAC sets and disseminates the standards of care through our responsive and evidence-based asthma guidelines, practice tools and resources and renowned education program.

The NAC actively works to assess and address the impacts of asthma through advocacy and collaboration with policy makers, stakeholders and Australian and international asthma and lung health organisations.

Through its Sensitive Choice program, the NAC provides the public with essential information about asthma and allergy management and empowers consumers to identify asthma and allergy-aware products and services.
