About EFA

Patients and their needs and rights are at the heart of everything we do. The European Federation of Allergy and Airways Diseases Patients Associations (EFA) was established in 1991 as a European network for patient associations specialising in allergy and asthma.

We work on behalf of patients to:

  1. Promote awareness of allergies and airways diseases among policymakers and the general public.
  2. Broaden our understanding of these conditions by increased collaboration between national patient associations.
  3. Share knowledge and experience to beneficially educate both the public and EFA members.
  4. Promote patient concerns and opinions within the European institutions and enable national patient associations to gain representation at EU level.
  5. Improve their health and quality of life.
