Asthma Disparities are Top Priority in the President’s Task Force on Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks to Children

The Task Force is a collaboration among 18 Federal agencies, and they just published their priorities for the next five years. The four priority areas are: Asthma Disparities; Lead Exposures; Climate Change, Emergencies, and Disasters; and Chemical Exposures. Among their list of long-term actions to address Asthma Disparities are: 

  • Encourage and support sustainable financing for home-based asthma care. 
  • Support equitable expectations for asthma care. 
  • Support equitable expectations for indoor air quality and environmental management in schools (i.e., all children deserve a healthy school environment).
