World Allergy Week 2015

World Allergy Week 2015

The World Allergy Week is an annual initiative of the World Allergy Organization (WAO), together with its 97 member societies, which includes the Philippines. It was established to raise awareness of allergic disease and related disorders and advocate for the provision of training and resources in the diagnosis, management and prevention of these diseases including asthma which are rising in prevalence around the world. Historically, WAO hosted the 1st ”World Allergy Day” in July 2005. This was the reason why PSAAI also worked towards the proclamation of National Allergy Day every July 8. However, after recommendations from WAO Member Societies, the WAO Board of Directors approved the establishment of World Allergy Week in April 2011, in conjunction with Earth Day which also happens in April. April 4-10m 2016 has been marked as World Allergy Week 2016, with the theme “Pollen Allergies – Adapting to a Changing Climate”. PSAAI joins WAO...

PSAAI members at the World Allergy Congress 2015, Seoul, Korea

  Recently attended the World Allergy Congress 2015 in Seoul, Korea along with 20 other Filipino allergists and fellows in training. Attendance was said to have been 2,200 delegates from 76 countries, so it was truly a world event.   The PSAAI members who were able to attend were all in agreement that there was indeed much learning and fun global networking. It's always an eye opener to see and hear world wide views and updates on allergic diseases. While the scientists have so much to be excited about, what with all the high-falluting research on new diagnostic biologic markers, pathophysiologic mechanisms and new designs on therapeutic agents, clinicians look forward to all this data to be translated to clinical tools that can ultimately help in patient care.

President's Message


The past month had everyone caught up in a holiday frenzy, with all the parties, merry-making, shopping, gift-giving, cooking and whatever! 
 
But I hope that all of us managed to find some quiet time for ourselves to reflect that Jesus is and will always be the Reason for the Season. 
 
The New Year is upon us. Let us all strive to be more CHRIST-like, sharing His love and kindness to others, not only during Christmas but the whole year through. 
 
May our homes be filled with love, peace, happiness, prosperity and good health this 2016. 
 
May PSAAI surge forward and upward as we continue to be of service to others, in search of excellence in all our endeavors. 
 
Maria Carmela A Kasala, MD 
President, PSAAI
