Asthma Management and Control in the U.S.
Asthma remains a major public health challenge. The rate at which Americans are diagnosed has slowed since the 1990s but is still growing. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention launched the National Asthma Control Program (NACP) to address the rising public health and economic impact of asthma. Ross Strategic recently developed NACP’s report,
An Investment in America’s Health, to illustrate the program’s significant progress in controlling asthma in the U.S. Over the last 12 years, costs due to asthma illness and death have decreased by $23.1 billion, representing an estimated return on investment of $71 for each dollar spent.
