  It was reported that in 2018, Chinese population reached 1.39 billion, accounting for 17.8% of the global population, of which the population aged 0-15 accounted for 17.9% of Chinese total population [1]. At the same, China is experiencing a severe shortage of paediatricians, with fewer than 118 000 clinicians to serve a population of 220 million children under the age of 14, a ratio of only 0.5 practitioners per 1000 children [2]. Asthma in children is one of the most common respiratory diseases in childhood [3]. In recent years, the incidence of childhood asthma in China has been increasing. In 2010, the prevalence of childhood asthma in China was 3.02% [4]. It was estimated that there were more than10 million asthmatic children in China, placing an increasing burden on healthcare services.
