World Allergy Week 2-8 April 2017

Mar 8, 2017

This is a global campaign of the World Allergy Organisation (WAO) which aims to raise awareness of the impact of allergy in our communities.

This years' theme is 'The Agony of Hives – What to do when hives and swelling don’t go away'. AIFA and ASCIA (as a member society of the WAO) are supporting this initiative in Australia and New Zealand through our new 'wear a spot of red' campaign.

This campaign encourages our supporters to help raise awareness and funds to support research into allergy, by wearing a spot of red or holding an event in their home, school or workplace. Why not organise a 'wear a spot of red' mufti day at work, decorate your workspace or classroom using 'a spot of red' or host a 'spot of red' morning tea or bake sale?

Make sure you take some photos and post them to social media using #WorldAllergyWeek. For more details on how to join this initiative visit www.allergyimmunology.org.au/support-aifa/WorldAllergyWeek
