The Statewide Asthma Partnership (SAP), which is a collaborative multi-sector partnership, was established in 2014. Members of the partnership come from a variety of sectors within the health field bringing expertise from their respective sector. This partnership works to expand the concept of comprehensive asthma control services to CT residents, help prepare communities support those with asthma, ensure that people with asthma have better control of their asthma and have a better quality of life and develop an asthma state model that has fewer disparities in asthma care and better health outcomes.
