Where are we heading?
Our major aim is to encourage and support the development of the discipline of Allergy, Asthma and Clinical Immunology in the region, especially in those countries where there is not a society as yet. To achieve this we want to bring into APAAACI those National Societies in our region who are not yet members of our organization, and to encourage and assist in the formation of National Societies where none exist.
We have decided to increase the number of APAAACI congresses from once every three years to once every two years to help facilitate interchange of the most recent medical knowledge in Allergy, Asthma and Clinical Immunology among member societies.
We have successfully published the APAAACI journal which has become the best journal in Asia on Allergy, Asthma and Clinical Immunology providing a platform for Asian colleagues to showcase the results of their researches to the world (www.apallergy.org)
In addition, we have upgraded this website so that it could become a platform where member societies can upload their guidelines, their activities and events so that more physicians would become aware of this discipline.
We hope that by doing all these and more, APAAACI will be able not only to block the advance of the epidemic of Allergic Diseases but also help to prevent and treat these diseases more effectively.
