NACI in Action

You can help someone with asthma breathe easier.

At the NACI’s core were three major national efforts that aim to enhance implementation of the Expert Panel Report 3—Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma (EPR-3) by putting into action the six key messages of the Guidelines Implementation Panel (GIP) Report.

  • The NACI Demonstration Projects engaged 13 projects nationwide to design and implement innovative real-world applications of GIP messages and strategies.
  • The NACI Strategic Partnership Program supported leading non-profit, scientific, professional, academic, and voluntary organizations in strategic partnerships with the NHLBI to conduct GIP-based interventions for a sustainable impact on asthma control.
  • The NACI Champions Program enlisted dedicated stakeholders at the national, regional, state, and local levels to disseminate the GIP messages through their partners and networks.

By working together with dedicated individuals and organizations to control asthma and reduce asthma disparities, the NACI expanded best practices across clinical practices, schools, childcare settings, worksites, and communities; built supportive health systems and financing structures; and measured and assessed performance and impacts.

We invite you to use the NACI tools and other resources available through this Web site to enhance implementation of GIP messages and strategies.
