Past Projects

California Asthma Among the School-Aged Project - The CAASA project is a research study involving seven community clinics in California that improved guideline-based asthma care for children 5-18 years old through the use of Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI), Community Health Workers (CHWs) and Community linkages.  To view the article published in Pediatrics, click here (PDF, New Window) .

Childhood Asthma Intiative - In 2000, the Department of Health Services received funding from First 5 California to establish a statewide asthma project (funded through June 30, 2005). The goals of the Childhood Asthma Initiative (CAI) are to decrease asthma morbidity and to improve the quality of life for children aged 0 to 5 years with asthma and their families. These goals have been accomplished by improving the delivery, quality, and coordination of preventive, educational, and medical care services directed toward childhood asthma.
