Funding for medical research into allergy and other immune diseases is critical. Why are these diseases increasing? Our strategy includes targeted medical research, with a focus on innovation and optimising clinical outcomes. We need answers, better treatments, better access to care, and cures. Nothing less.
AIFA provides a vehicle for corporate or personal donors, as well as philanthropic organisations, to contribute to a fund that will enable this important future research, identified by experts in the field, and motivated by you, the one whose life is touched by allergic disease.
Our overheads are low and focused on web-based operations and marketing. So your money goes to the research that will make a difference.
Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible, and donors of $100 or more are listed on the AIFA website under the following categories:
All donations of any amount are appreciated and will help us to make a difference.
AIFA Background information
Allergy and other immune diseases affect the lives of 1 in 4 people in Australia and New Zealand. The Allergy and Immunology Foundation of Australasia (AIFA) is a charity dedicated to improving the health of people living with allergic diseases, immunodeficiencies and other immune diseases (such as Lupus and Wegener's Granulomatosis).
AIFA helps to fund medical research projects that will lead to the better detection of disease, strategies for prevention, improved treatments and potential cures. We also aim to raise awareness of allergy and immune disease.
AIFA research grants encourage projects that are focused on results for patients. They promote collaborations between researchers throughout Australia and New Zealand. Young researchers trying to break into the competitive world of medical research are supported through the AIFA Early Career Researchers Grant awarded annually. See some of our work at www.allergyimmunology.org.au/projects.
AIFA is not government funded and relies on donations from individuals and organisations.
