About Us


The Asthma Foundation of Tasmania exists to help Tasmanians manage the effects of asthma and linked conditions, so they can lead a better life.1


  • Our services are accessible to all Tasmanians.
  • While we assist people with conditions linked to asthma, our primary focus is on asthma.
  • We encourage and support people with asthma to take responsibility for managing their condition.
  • Our decisions and actions concerning health and marketing are based on the scientific method.
  • Frank and fearless evaluation of what we do ultimately leads to the greatest benefits for people with asthma.

1“Linked conditions” include allergic rhinitis, allergy and COPD. Generally, when we use the word “asthma” in this plan, we are also referring to these linked conditions.
