About Us

Welcome to the Asthma Task Force

About UsThe Asthma Task Force mission is to prevent asthma, reduce asthma disparities and improve the quality of life for people with asthma who live or work in the City and County of San Francisco, by the use of advocacy, legislative action and citywide strategies.

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors created the Asthma Task Force in 2001 legislation to address the epidemic of asthma through primary prevention strategies with an emphasis on reducing asthma disparities disproportionately affecting lower income communities in San Francisco.

Over 75 individuals representative of community advocates, health professionals such as physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists and health educators, representatives of the Department of Public Health (SFDPH), the Department of the Environment and other City agencies have served as members in the ten-year history of the Task Force.
