Care of asthmatic children and adolescents in their community is the cornerstone of Community-based intervention. This model implies pediatric health teams, working in primary care, and making effective that intervention in coordination with second level (hospital), community resources and school.

This process culminates with the Regional Children and Adolescent Asthma Plan. This paper reviews the steps given in Asturias during this process.
