2) To ensure that symptoms of asthma are recognized by patients, families, and the public, and that appropriate diagnosis is made by health professionals;
3) To ensure effective control of asthma by encouraging a partnership among patients, physicians, and other health professionals, using appropriate, modern treatment and education programs.
