The Wisconsin Asthma Coalition (WAC) is committed to improving asthma management for children and adults. Since the WAC’s inception in 2001, the role of the Alliance has been to coordinate the coalition of more than 200 members, and facilitate the creation and implementation of the Wisconsin Asthma Plan.

The WAC Executive Committee meets monthly in-person to guide, monitor, and make recommendations to implement the Wisconsin Asthma Plan.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) Asthma Program has received funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) since 2001 to support coalition activities and intensive statewide surveillance. The Alliance is contracted by DHS to coordinate the WAC and the creation, distribution and implementation of the Wisconsin Asthma Plan. The current funding, a five-year CDC Cooperative Agreement, continues coalition efforts and implementation of the plan.
