Texas Asthma Control Program


Welcome to the Texas Asthma Control Program (TACP) 

The TACP is located within the Chronic Disease Branch, Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Section at the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). In collaboration with other state organizations and community partners, the TACP strives to improve the quality of life for Texans living with asthma. Past activities have included conducting asthma surveillance, supporting and promoting state and local partnerships, promoting policies that address and improve asthma outcomes, funding effective interventions that increase asthma self-management and reduce the burden of asthma in Texas, and evaluating activities to guide the use of program resources and interventions.
