Czechia is among the lowest scorers in terms of Policy Context due to a lack of national strategy for asthma, a moderate level of alignment with best practices for severe asthma care, a lack of reporting to asthma registries, and moderate tobacco control. This is compounded by a low score in Health System Characteristics, which is attributable to a high average number of days spent in hospital despite a moderate number of hospitalisations, though Czechia reports a relatively high number of respiratory specialists. Czechia’s score is slightly below the average within Environmental Factors though it shows one of the highest levels of indoor air quality.
