GA²LEN campaign alerts healthcare professionals and patients of the importance of the link between rhinitis and asthma. The majority of asthma patients have rhinitis, and patients with rhinitis have a much higher prevalence of asthma than those who do not have rhinitis. Rhinitis is a risk factor for asthma. Improvement of allergic rhinitis symptoms can be associated with improvement of asthma symptoms.
2 brochures are available for patients and primary care professionals. They are now translated in 11 languages. The campaign is jointly developed by GA²LEN and EFA. More information and all brochures are available on the GA²LEN website.
