Triple A (Adolescent Asthma Action) is the first peer-led education program that aims to:

  • improve asthma self-management for adolescents from disadvantaged and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds
  • promote resilience for high school students to resist the peer pressure to smoke
  • improve educational outcomes for high school students
  • enable adolescents to promote smoke-free messages to their family.

Triple A is a collaborative project between the University of Sydney, the Western Sydney Local Health District and high schools in Western Sydney.
