Massachusetts Asthma Action Partnership

Asthma is a chronic disease that can have a significant impact on the quality of life of the person with asthma and his or her family. Uncontrolled asthma can result in wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, tiredness, stress, inability to work or go to school, and in some cases death. Asthma is a complex disease that requires a multi-faceted approach to reduce the burden it places on the residents of Massachusetts. Currently, there is no known cure for asthma.

The Massachusetts Asthma Action Partnership (MAAP) is a program of Health Resources in Action (HRiA), whose mission is to reduce asthma health disparities and improve the quality of life for all people with asthma in the Commonwealth by coordinating statewide efforts. MAAP is the only statewide asthma partnership that links to local efforts across the state and brings together a diverse group of stakeholders to achieve sustainable statewide changes in the environment, education and quality of health care as they relate to asthma.
