Regional Asthma Management and Prevention (RAMP)
RAMP works to reduce the burden of asthma in the Bay Area through the facilitation of diverse constituents addressing a broad spectrum of activities, ranging from clinical management to environmental prevention. RAMP provides technical assistance to local asthma coalitions, is a clearing house of asthma information, provides regional capacity-building workshops, and serves as a collective voice for policy change. The RAMP model is noteworthy for its regional approach to addressing asthma and has been very successful in creating links between the asthma, environmental, and environmental justice communities.
