Promoting Asthma Friendly Environments Through Partnerships and Collaborations

Funding Agency:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announces availability of Fiscal Year 2020 funds for NOFO EH20-2002, Promoting Asthma Friendly Environments Through Partnerships and Collaborations. The purpose of this NOFO is to promote evidence-based asthma strategies and interventions through partnerships and collaborations. Recipients will develop partnerships and collaborations using health education and communication strategies that will result in measurable impacts. These strategies are outlined in the CDC asthma technical package, EXHALE. Recipients will strengthen existing programs to expand the reach of services through six EXHALE strategies.

Efforts will be supported by core public health activities: partnership engagement, workforce development, guidance and support for programmatic efforts, strategic communication, and evaluation. Infrastructure activities will support communication and education interventions tailored to multiple audiences, such as people with asthma, caregivers, school personnel, and health care providers. Recipients will provide clear, consistent, and straightforward guidance on the delivery of asthma education for people with asthma and health professionals, and explain how optimal interactions between these groups and other relevant professionals (e.g., schools, policy-makers) should be established and maintained. Recipients should focus on populations most vulnerable to the effects of asthma.
