Patients, doctors and Members of the European Parliament Interest Group on Allergy and Asthma have launched a call to action to improve the quality of life of allergy and asthma patients. See more details on this campaign co-led by EFA, our member, on EPF’s Blog!
Targeted at European and national decision-makers, this campaign has been initiated by the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) and the European Federation of Allergy and Airways Diseases Patients’ Associations (EFA), member of EPF.
Its overarching objective is to unite all strategic European and national stakeholders as well as interested individuals to help drive change in the policy responses to allergy and asthma, and to support patients’ rights.
In particular, it calls for:
- European strategies and programmes on allergy and asthma to be implemented in all Member States;
- Greater funding for research to advance the understanding of allergy and asthma;
- Better prevention and diagnosis to achieve early detection and allow timely and effective treatment;
- Actions to address underlying triggers, such as air quality, food allergens and chemicals, and to improve the analysis of the root causes of allergic diseases;
Strengthened work to pioneer individualised treatment and progress personalised medicine.The Call to Action is open until the end of September for endorsement by all interested parties wishing to join this move to support stronger and improved allergy and asthma policies.
Do you want to join in creating a healthier and happier future for the over 220 million patients suffering from allergy and asthma in Europe?
