Respiratory problems are the most comment ailments that affect people today, and it is estimated that almost 2.63 crore people in India suffer from acute respiratory disease. It is estimated that by the year 2025 an additional 100 million people will be asthmatic all over the world. Hence, there is a dire need for awareness about this debilitating respiratory illness. Therefore, Indian Asthma Care Society was established on 21st May 1985 to help asthmatic patients and to launch a campaign against tobacco. IACS also works for deprived asthmatic patients and helps them by treating their respiratory problems.   Dr. US Mathur and Dr. Virendra Singh were founder president and secretary of the IACS respectively. Since inception, IACS has remained actively involved in education of asthma patients and anti-tobacco activities.
