Maryland Asthma Control Program

The Maryland Asthma Control Program started in October 2001 as a result of a CDC grant to the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Family Health Administration, Center for Maternal and Child Health.  The Maryland Asthma Control Program seeks to prevent asthma and maximize the heath and well being of children, adolescents, and adults living with asthma. The Program's goals are:

  • To decrease the prevalence of asthma and the occurrence of its complications in Maryland through education, outreach and surveillance; and
  • To decrease the disparity in health outcomes related to asthma by ensuring that all persons with asthma receive appropriate culturally competent, community-based care and services.
