Asthma Control Program


To reduce disparities among populations disproportionately affected by asthma and improve health outcomes of all Rhode Islanders with asthma.

What we do

  • Increase access to quality healthcare, asthma education, community resources, and services.
  • Identify and focus efforts on at-risk populations which include: Hispanic and black non-Hispanic children, Medicaid recipients, and children and adults of low income residing in the core cities.
  • Advocate for healthy environments where people with asthma live, work, learn, and play.
  • Collaborate with the Rhode Island Asthma Control Coalition and the Healthy Housing Collaborative to help people with asthma manage their disease.
  • Develop innovative projects like the Breathe Easy at Home pilot project to diagnose and control asthma triggers in the home of children with asthma in select core cities.
