Abstract

The problem of asthma in Chicago remains a complex one, and it is too early to know whether any programs and efforts have had a discernible effect, but the Chicago Asthma Consortium continues to expand its membership and to define its mission. The successes have come from harnessing the passion of the individual members to move the projects forward. As the focus of the consortium moves to addressing system-wide problems in asthma care and the delivery of that care, the consortium is undertaking the construction of a guide for future efforts. In this way, the consortium will fulfill its vision of creating a comprehensive, community-wide plan for the management of asthma, impacting on the unacceptable current levels of morbidity and mortality of the disease.
