The mission of the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) Chronic Respiratory Disease Section is to reduce the burden of asthma in Indiana.
The Chronic Respiratory Disease Section works to implement the State Asthma Plan. The State Asthma Plan guides the development and implementation of interventions that improve the health and quality of life of Hoosiers with asthma. The program also maintains a comprehensive surveillance system for the ongoing, systematic collection of asthma data. In addition to data collection, the system also allows for analysis and interpretation of asthma data, which is essential to the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the program.
