HISTORY OF THE WORLD ALLERGY ORGANIZATION

The seeds of the World Allergy Organization were sown in 1951 when leaders in allergy from all over the world came together to form the International Association of Allergology and Clinical Immunology (IAACI). To celebrate the 60-year Diamond Anniversary of this vibrant and global organization, the World Allergy Organization Journal (WAO Journal) is publishing a series of articles written by WAO’s past and present leaders. The list below includes links to the full text of the articles published in the WAO Journal.
