Thanks to everyone who sends us quotes on how you benefit from GAAPP.


My name is Laonis Quinn and I am the founder and Executive Director of “Breathe Anthony J Chapman Asthma Foundation. Since becoming a member of the GAAPP organization I have met so many wonderful people including the President, the Board of Directors, and others that make up the GAAPP family. This organization provides education and advocacy for people with respiratory diseases from all walks of life, and from every continent worldwide.  This is what makes this organization one-of-a-kind. Highlighting our organization from the beginning, by placing our videos and posters concerning asthma education, on the GAAPP social media outlets has given us a much larger platform to speak from here in the U.S.  We have been recognized in a more positive light. The GAAPP organization is willing to partner with other organization to bring about change that will empower people with respiratory diseases to become their own advocates and let their voices be heard to bring about change to policies on how healthcare is delivered. It is their goal to “minimize the impact of allergies, asthma, and urticaria” have on patients’ lives.

Institut Atopika Slovenia

Institut Atopika is a non-governmental organization that represents patients with atopic dermatitis, asthma, allergies and other associated medical conditions in Slovenia, and we are very grateful to be a member of the international organization GAAPP. With the help of GAAPP, it is easier for us to stay informed about current events, trainings and newly published scientific articles with important medical advances. Through GAAPP, we can connect with other organizations around the world and with important stakeholders. We are a smaller organisation without regular financial support and with all our activities accomplished by volunteers. In this respect, GAAPP can co-finance our programmes, which allows us to provide higher quality services for our users.

Tina Mesaric, Atopika

Being part of GAAPP is an asset to our organisation, as it helps us grow thanks to the network of international organisations and other patients associations that it creates; this network gives the possibility of confronting one another and find that we have similar missions and can work together to achieve one goal. The possibility of associations and patients groups working together ultimately helps improve the quality of life of our patients, by giving us resources that are not accessible in Italy. Another aspect that we feel it is very important, is the Possibility of raising awareness of the pathologies we deal with at European and international level. Finally, we feel that the possibility of suggesting organizational and empowerment models to share (capacity building) is also an important aspect.

Francesca Pirovano, Respiriamoinsieme

On behalf of Asthma and Allergies Patient Association of Ethiopia,  we are very pleased to be under the umbrella of GAAPP. The benefits we are getting as a member are

  • GAAPP is doing a global patient advocate for our cause. this is manifested in the synthetic meetings.
  • GAAPP is serving as a bridge for national advocates to link with other actors. Like Pharmaceutical companies where patients can work in collaboration with them.
  • GAAPP is a source for technical and financial capacity building.

It is in our best interest to be part of GAAPP to be in contact with leading organizations in other countries, and to be able to learn about best practices at an international level. This also gives us the opportunity to identify strategic projects in which we can participate. In addition, GAAPP facilitates an update on new standards, opportunities and trends in the future of healthcare
