State asthma program pilot sites conducted assessments using the Cultural Competence Assessment Tool developed by CDC to ensure that asthma programs and partners are culturally competent.
This pilot project was useful for state grantees in assessing the cultural competence of their programs. Grantees used their findings to develop action plans to enhance their programs. Broad dissemination of program findings will provide grantees and their partners with important guidance for asthma programs, and will highlight the need for cultural competence in provision of care and services to diverse populations.
