Asthma education for parents and teachers

Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ is New Zealand’s principle authority for all respiratory conditions, delivering education, research, and advocacy.


Empowering parents and teachers to manage asthma better.

The Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ envisioned arming parents, teachers, and families with the knowledge, understanding, and skills to manage children’s asthma successfully. This required a modern approach to provide access to as many caregivers as possible in a relevant and engaging way.

We started by connecting with local families and schools to understand their needs better when supporting children with asthma. This resulted in two distinct web portals, each tailored to the audience’s needs. For families and caregivers, the learning experience is guided and rich with media and reflection points.

For schools, the on-demand toolkit makes key information quickly accessible while also providing teaching resources to include students in wider wellness discussions.

Together, these materials provide multiple ways for parents and teachers to engage with key messages about asthma management.


Both sites have been well received and are now a core component of the Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ’s education offering.
