Asthma is a growing problem which is spontaneously fixing its deadly roots under the immense pressure and stress in today’s fast life.
According to World Health Organization, around 300 million people suffer from asthma and every year around 30 million people die because it around the world.
The number of asthma patient’s is increasing steadily around the globe, also it is estimated that the number will rise to 100 million by 2025. The World Health Organization has estimated that 15 million disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) are lost annually due to asthma, representing 5%of the total global disease burden which reflects the high prevalence and severity of asthma. The number of DALYs lost due to asthma is much higher than that for diabetes, cirrhosis of the liver, or schizophrenia.
And as we talk about India, the results are shocking, there are 40 million people who are suffering from this disease and the numbers are rising every day. Around 65,000 people die because of this chronic disease.
Asthma deaths are the ultimate, tragic evidence of uncontrolled asthma. It is estimated that asthma accounts for about 1 in every 250 deaths worldwide. 90% of these deaths occur because of:
Delay in obtaining help
Poor Adherence to the Asthmatic medication
Non-availability of inhaler at the time of need.
