The rise in the burden of asthma is a well-documented international phenomenon. In a series of papers, Dr. Sylvia Brandt & colleagues explore factors impacting households’ adoption of asthma management guidelines and found that behavioral factors relate to consistently using preventative asthma medication. The longer-run goals of the project include developing asthma education and intervention programs that work with, rather than against, consumer preferences—and incorporating possible financial incentives as appropriate.
