Asthma Briefing Kit

The Community Action to Fight Asthma (CAFA) Briefing Kit was developed as a tool to educate decision-makers about the problem of asthma and the need for environmental policy changes. Originally developed in 2004 and updated in 2007 and 2009, the kit includes science-based fact sheets on the health impacts of poor air quality in schools, homes, and outdoor environments. It also includes general information about asthma in California, the structure and purpose of the CAFA Network, and broad policy priorities.
