The Asthma Spacer Ordering System (ASOS) was established in 2006 to provide low cost spacers and masks to Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services. This service was managed by Asthma Foundation Victoria.
As of October 2011, ASOS is being managed by Asthma Australia, with day to day management of orders being undertaken by Asthma Foundation SA (AFSA).
This program is able to operate because suppliers provide low cost products and the Foundations cover staff costs. There is no profit margin in the program.
Additional free information and resources are also available to services.
