Asthma UK launches awareness drive
Asthma UK has launched a new awareness campaign, entitled The Deadly Serious Campaign to highlight the fact that the condition can be fatal. The charity's campaign will be supported by its first television adverts, which hope to generate awareness of the fact that over 90 per cent of deaths are preventable. While the TV ads will last for just a week, the PR push is planned to last up to World Asthma Day on May 2.
