DVD: Cough free – the way to be
In collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Health TV the Asthma Foundation has put together a DVD. Cough free – the way to be, narrated by former Warriors rugby league player Wairangi Koopu, focuses on recognising the signs of infection that can lead to bronchiectasis and acting on them. It is targeted at Maori but the messages apply to everyone.
