World Allergy Week 2014


Welcome! Join us during World Allergy Week 2014 and increase awareness  of Anaphylaxis - When Allergies Can Be Severe and Fatal. There are many ways you can participate, and we hope you will explore this website, returning often, as it will continue to change.

If you are a WAO Member Society, or an individual physician, planning to participate in World Allergy Week, you will find resources for your activities. In the Patient Advocacy section, there is information for those newly diagnosed or already suffering from anaphylaxis, as well as for parents, families, teachers and caregivers of people suffering from anaphylaxis.

How did you raise awareness of anaphylaxis?
