From the President’s Desk

June has been a hectic month! EAACI did not disappoint with over 8000 attendees & breaking scientific advancements in allergy, airways & atopic diseases. We gained several new industry partners & connected with dozens of key opinion leaders. I was also asked to be a formal advisor to EAACI leadership!

As many of you head to our AGM or spend time unwinding during holiday, check out what several of our member organizations have been up to here…

Or take time to listen in to these new GAAPP Webinars…


The Patient View Survey highlighted below shares interesting insights into working with industry partners.  Also, don’t forget to  engage in our AD or CU coffee chats to collaborate with others in your GAAPP disease area community.

Finally, let me know if you are interested in a private discussion to advance access to biologics in your country. We are making headway in LATAM, China & Eastern EU. We would love to add you to our efforts!

I can hardly wait to see many of you in Santiago & Vienna in the coming weeks! Stay the course of the amazing work advocating on behalf of patients!

All my best,

Study: Are patient groups essential healthcare stakeholders in 2024?

The survey hopes to quantify the significance of patient organizations (like your own) within healthcare systems, determine how your patient organization is perceived by other healthcare stakeholders—in your opinion, map the activities of your patient organisation (and others) and learn about the types of support that your organization needs if it is to fulfill its goals, and improve patient outcomes.

The study has been initiated by PatientView, which is research, publishing, and consultancy group, created out of a belief that the views of patients should be considered in all important healthcare decisions (whether a new healthcare product is being developed, or whether a government is instituting changes to a health system).

To be sure that your response is received in time, please complete it before the survey’s closing date of Friday 26th July, 2024.
