Allergic rhinitis is a common condition worldwide that significantly impacts patient quality of life and presents a major economic burden to society.

The WAO Allergic Rhinitis Working Group is a worldwide initiative focused on raising awareness and sharing information on allergic rhinitis toward improved patient care. The initial goals of the Working Group are to:

1) gather educational and scientific materials on allergic rhinitis into a central repository for freely available worldwide access, and

2) provide interactive learning programs on allergic rhinitis in children and adults.

Coming Soon - WAO Online Learning Modules!

This program will consist of two modules based on case histories, one involving allergic rhinitis in children and the other in adults. In a self-paced interactive program, participants will be able to move through the case histories and follow links to a number of resources available online about allergic rhinitis. This WAO program will be free with universal access.
