World Allergy Week

Welcome! Join us during World Allergy Week 2015 and increase awareness of Airway Allergies - A Human and Economic Burden. There are many ways you can participate, and we hope you will explore this website, returning often, as it will continue to change.

The World Allergy Organization (WAO) is addressing the need for greater awareness and understanding of allergy topics as well as the exchange of ideas and collaboration in order to address treatment and quality-of-life issues related to the care of patients with allergic rhinitis and asthma.
