April 25th 2017, marked the launch of the political Call to Action – ‘United Action for Allergy and Asthma’ at the European Parliament in Brussels.
This campaign has been initiated by the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) and the European Federation of Allergy and Airways Diseases Patients’ Associations (EFA), in partnership with the European Parliament Interest Group on Allergy and Asthma.
The first step of the campaign is to collect signatures to show the need for development in monitoring, preventing and treating allergies and asthma. This call to action is open until 30th September 2017.
Step two will take the signed endorsement list and the official Call to Action document to decision-making European institutions. The need for development and specific policy asks of EU Member States, European Commission, European Parliament will be presented for discussion. Following these discussions, definitive action plans for implementation will be developed.
