EFA - European Parliament Interest Group on Allergy and Asthma

The European Federation of Allergy and Airways Diseases Patients Association (EFA), the European Respiratory Society (ERS) and HEAL’s Vice President Marie-Christine Dewolf recently attended the launch of the European Parliament Interest Group to take actions on allergy and asthma in Europe.

The Interest Group is an informal group of Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) committed to give a clearer policy response to address allergy and asthma at the EU level. The group serves to share expertise and help align interests to trigger EU policy actions on allergy and asthma health.

Members of the Group will provide a strong and unified contribution to EU policies on chronic diseases, air pollution, and research, to name just a few topics.

The Secretariat of the Interest Group on Allergy and Asthma will be run by the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) in partnership with EFA and will work closely to voice the needs of people living with allergy and asthma.

More information and to access the press release is available on EFA’s website here
