Asthma is a major cause of chronic morbidity throughout the world. In Switzerland, 6.9% of the adult population is suffering from asthma. The standards of treatment are unfortunately not met in most western countries, as well as in Switzerland. We put forward a complete guideline on management of adult asthma, inspired from GINA and BTS guidelines, and adapted to the specific needs of general practitioners working in french part of Switzerland. This guideline reflects a consensus between allergy, lung and emergency specialists, working in the 2 university hospitals of the Lake Geneva Region (HUG and CHUV).
