Millennium Fellowship Project: Asthma Awareness and Management Initiative (AAMI)

Asthma Awareness and Management initiative (AAMi) is a project targeted at gradually reaching a good percentage of the entire populace consisting of asthmatics and nonasthmatics. It aims at educating the public on the causes, prevention of asthma triggers, and proper management involved in asthma care thus enhancing and improving the quality of life of asthma patients.
Asthma is a major Non-communicable disease(NCD) that has been identified also as a global burden being the most common chronic disease among children. According to the World Health Organization(WHO), asthma affected an estimated 262 000 000 people in 2019 and caused 461 000 deaths. AAMi would help to reduce the global burden arising from the impact of Non-communicable diseases. This would be achieved through sustainable education on the proper way to curtail and erase asthma triggers, attacks, and deaths.
The project would prioritize hosting awareness programs within the University of Nigeria which would educate about 1000 students of faculty of pharmaceutical sciences and faculty of social science on the importance of early asthma diagnosis and adequate management of the condition. It would buttress the importance of a healthy lifestyle as a key asthma management technique and also correct the various misconceptions that the students have about asthma.
There would be a training session where participants would be trained on how to manage an asthmatic patient in the case of an asthmatic attack.
The AAMi project members would collaborate with a specialist in asthma care and pioneer of the Asthma Awareness and Care Group(AACG), and other social health and public health groups on campus to achieve the aim of the project.
