On the proposal of Mrs. Professor Ait Khaled, I was involved with my team to ISAAC Phase Three. It was a great adventure team. After obtaining the permission of those responsible for education and health, I had an interview with the director of each school. They all showed great interest in the study and collaborated in programming. I attended school health physicians in the Wilaya of Algiers. Many of them participated in the study with my team. Teachers were also a contribution especially for the discipline in the classroom. To avoid problems we asked all students in each class covered by the study. They all answered the questions as if it were a game. I am happy to have participated in the study whose results serve as reference for the prevalence of asthma in children in Algéria.
