By Abdul Qadir Qureshi

The Aga Khan University Hospital will be organizing an awareness session on World Asthma Day (May 3) with the theme ‘You can control your asthma’ at the Aga Khan University Auditorium in Karachi. 

Asthma is a chronic disease of the lungs which causes breathing problems. The symptoms of asthma attack include breathlessness, coughing, wheezing and a feeling of tightness in the chest. 

It can be controlled by knowing the warning signs of an attack, staying away from things that trigger an attack, and following the advice of your health care provider. 

The aim of the event is to raise awareness for those who are affected by asthma as well as for the family or friends who are primary caregivers.
