Sustainable Financing for Asthma Education and Home Environmental Trigger Remediation: Lessons Learned from the Field (Webinar)

April 10, 2018

Last fall, PHI's Regional Asthma Management and Prevention program (RAMP) released Sustainable Financing for Asthma Education and Home Environmental Trigger Remediation: Lessons Learned from the Field. The document highlights lessons learned from a variety of efforts across select states to increase access to and the sustainability of in-home asthma services.

To ensure that people with poorly controlled asthma have access to the services and systems they need to be healthy, advocates have long recognized the need for sustainable financing for asthma education and home environmental trigger assessment and remediation. Recent transformations to the health care system, including a greater emphasis on prevention, provide more opportunities sustain existing programs and bring such services to scale.

On Monday, May 7th, from 10:00-11:00 Pacific, RAMP is hosting a webinar for participants to learn more about these lessons related to efforts in California, Michigan, New Mexico and elsewhere. You’ll also learn more about technical assistance available from the National Center for Healthy Housing and partners to help you advance your own work.

To ensure that people with poorly controlled asthma have access to the services and systems they need to be healthy, advocates have long recognized the need for sustainable financing for asthma education and home environmental trigger assessment and remediation. Recent transformations to the health care system, including a greater emphasis on prevention, provide more opportunities sustain existing programs and bring such services to scale. Building on this promise, public health, community, and government leaders across the nation have been supporting policy and program efforts while sharing lessons learned.

Given the innovative nature of these efforts, and the continuously evolving political and economic climate, in 2017 PHI's Regional Asthma Management and Prevention program (RAMP) developed Sustainable Financing for Asthma Education and Home Environmental Trigger Remediation: Lessons Learned from the Field to document and share this growing body of knowledge.
