"MySpira is a creative app that will give children with asthma an opportunity to fully understand their condition. The learning process will help them to take better control and gain more independence"
“Not only will MySpira lead to better health long-term, but if adopted nationwide, could dramatically reduce the number of emergency cases, resulting in fewer hospitalisations. We are looking at integrating this app into our existing asthma support services in the future.”
