Introduction: Chronic pulmonary diseases cause significant morbidity and mortality. However awareness about the risk factors, symptoms, diagnosis and traetment of these disorders is low among patients and health care providers. Our aim was to evaluate the awareness of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease among primary care doctors. This study was performed by the national Global Alliance Against Chronic Respiratory Diseases programme.
