GOLD producer Newmont Asia Pacific has pledged a three-year financial commitment to the Asthma Foundation WA to help it deliver asthma education and support to rural areas of the state.

The charity will use the funding to transport staff to remote areas of the state to deliver education courses and train local health professionals and the community on the effective treatment of asthma.

Asthma Foundation WA chief executive David Johnson said there were 225,000 Western Australians living with asthma and the hospitalisation rate due to asthma was 75 per cent higher among country residents than in the metro area.
