This three-year project aims to improve asthma knowledge by identifying the specific needs of Māori children with asthma in the primary school environment. An asthma toolkit will be developed and assessed for reducing asthma-related absences and quality of life amongst asthmatic children.

Te Atawhai o Te Ao has contracted with Dr. Tristram Ingham and Bernadette Jones of University of Otago.
