Thank you for your excellent contributions and efforts

WAO hosted World Allergy Week 2016 in collaboration with its Member Societies from 4-10 April. Patient organizations, hospitals, and many others also participated in raising awareness of pollen allergies around the world and the impact of changes in pollen seasons and aeroallergen exposures. A wide range of activities took place during the week including a WAO live webinar, patient education programs, and workshops for physicians as well as active promotions through social media channels, websites and blogs. The reports sent to WAO have been posted at, which will continually update throughout the next few weeks. WAO is looking forward to collaborating with you again for World Allergy Week 2017!
