World Allergy Week

Join AIFA for World Allergy Week - April 22-28, 2018. 

World Allergy Week 2018 logo 275x298World Allergy Week is a global campaign of the World Allergy Organisation (WAO) which aims to raise awareness of the impact of allergy in our communities.  2018's focus area is Atopic Dermatitis/Eczema: An Itch that Rashes. More information on this focus area can be found at

AIFA is supporting this initiative through our 2nd annual 'wear a spot of red' campaign when we ask our supporters to help raise awareness and funds to support research into allergy by wearing a spot of red or holding an event in their home, school or workplace.

We encourage everyone to organise an activity which will contribute to increased awareness about allergy. Why not organise a 'wear a spot of red' mufti day at work or school or host a 'spot of red' morning tea or bake sale?

This year we've created some fun activities that can be used in preschools, early childhood centres, classrooms or even at home. These include a 'spot the difference' game and a colouring in activity.

Please feel free to download and use these activities during World Allergy Week 2018.
