As part of efforts to create further awareness on the cause, prevention and management of asthma, GlaxoSmiKline Pharmaceuticals Nigeria Ltd (GSK), in partnership with Elias Nelson Oyedokun Foundation (ENOF), has called on Nigerians to learn about asthma and how it can be controlled, as this would aid in the prevention of asthmatic crisis among patients.
According to Dr. Okunubi, although there is no cure for asthma, it can be effectively controlled, hence the need for increased awareness campaigns so that people will be informed on how to prevent and as well control it.
“In line with our commitment at GSK to improve the quality of human lives, we aim to create as much disease awareness as possible. We do this in partnership with health organisations, government organisations and non-government organisations such as ENOF. This partnership with ENOF will help us increase people’s awareness on the burden of Asthma in Nigeria and how it can be controlled.”
