From the President’s Desk

April’s showers are upon us and World Asthma Day is just around the corner! Check out how your organization can amplify GAAPP content and earn significant funding support in this newsletter. Also, don’t waste any time registering for our 2023 Scientific Meeting and Annual General Meeting in Hamburg, Germany in early June.

Finally, mark your calendars for this month’s GAAPP Academy and join me in welcoming our new members from Nigeria and Togo. We are quickly approaching 100 organizations and remain so grateful to each of you for your commitment to serve while advancing care for the close to one billion people living with atopic and airways diseases!

All my best,






Get involved



The second ICAN Meeting will held in Milan, Italy, on 9 September 2023, in conjunction with the ERS Congress. The ICAN meeting was created to promote innovation and strengthen international collaborations on asthma in general, with a focus on severe asthma, and the currently unmet need in the space beyond well-described T2 pathways and treatments. We invite early career investigators to submit abstracts on severe and exacerbation prone asthma, especially when unresponsive to current therapies. 




The next session of GAAPP Academy is scheduled for 20 April at 17h CEST . Adapting your social media will feature Ravi Ruparel, Founder and CEO at Platform Worldwide.

In this session, you will learn:

  1. Why your PAG should use social media.
  2. How to overcome your challenges.
  3. How to determine the success of your social media.

This webinar will be hosted in English with Spanish live interpretation.

New GAAPP Twitter Account

In early November, our Twitter account was hacked, and suspended it. As a result, GAAPP has created a new account that also matches our handles in all the other social media channels @gaapporg. We request that you follow us there and share with your colleagues and community, so we can continue the engagement with your team and patient community. Follow us!
