The Allergy and Immunology Foundation of Australasia (AIFA) is a charity founded and supported by the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) in 2013. We do not receive government funding.

What we doWhat we do

Allergy and immune diseases affect 1 in 4 people in Australia and New Zealand.

AIFA aims to improve the health of people living with these chronic diseases by funding medical research and raising public awareness. 

This knowledge will lead to strategies for prevention, better treatments and potential cures.
