Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Foundation Commits $300,000 to Cure Kids’ Asthma Intervention Pilot Study
03 March 2023
Cure Kids is pleased to announce a new partnership with Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Foundation to invest $300,000 over two years to improve care for children with severe asthma in South Auckland
Any child who has had a severe asthma attack should be given an inhaler to deliver steroid treatment in case they have another attack – but in practice, 20% don't currently receive a preventer inhaler.
The study focuses on tamariki in South Auckland aged 5 to 15 years who are at risk for an asthma attack but have not received a preventer inhaler in the previous six months.
We are incredibly grateful for the support of Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Foundation and its recognition of the study’s potential to make a positive difference in our young people's lives.
