EFA launched the results of the survey: Fighting for Breath - a European Patient's Perspective on Severe Asthma at the ERS Congress in Copenhagen this month. The first report of its kind, the report investigates and highlights the challenges and impact of severe asthma on people from across Europe. The report showed that at least 1.5 million Europeans with severe asthma are living in constant fear that an asthma attack will kill them and that a quarter have speech limiting attacks at least once a week. For more information, see the report and presentations from the launch. For EFA members, the report of the launch is accessible at Members section of our website.
