World Allergy Week

World Allergy Week 2022

The theme for World Allergy Week 2022 (5 to 11 June) was respiratory allergic diseases, including asthma.

The importance of the connection between allergic airway diseases and asthma is reflected in the ASCIA 2022 Conference program and ASCIA online resources:  

World Allergy Week is a global campaign of the World Allergy Organisation (WAO), which aims to raise awareness of the impact of allergic diseases in our communities. 

The connection between asthma and allergic airway diseases is important, and it is known that asthma and allergies in the upper airways frequently co-exist. This can aggravate breathing difficulty, wheezing, cough, and other respiratory problems. Treating asthma and upper airway allergies together helps improve both problems. Integrated diagnostic and therapeutic approaches become even more important with severe and difficult-to-control disease. Fortunately, there are treatment options and patient education tools that can help to address such challenges.
