Access the EAACI Global Atlases
Allergic diseases are affecting the lives of more than one billion people worldwide and their prevalence is expected to reach up to 4 billion by the 2050s. To tackle this huge global health problem, EAACI called on world leaders in the field to develop the Atlases as essential reference sources for multi-sectoral usage and as a comprehensive educational tool for all stakeholders dealing with allergies and co-morbid diseases. The most recent publication is the Global Atlas of Allergic Rhinitis and Chronic Rhinosinusitis which is available open-access together with the Global Atlas of Asthma and Global Atlas of Allergy under Resources.
