Diseases mediated by allergic and immunological mechanisms can affect many different organs and may present problems to a wide variety of physicians in primary and secondary care. In order to improve information exchange and collaboration between specialists and scientists both within and outside EAACI, the academy has established the EAACI Sections on Basic & Clinical Immunology, Asthma, Pediatric, Dermatology and ENT. The sections are represented in the Executive Committee by their chairs and have the opportunity to propose task forces as well as joint sessions with appropriate specialised societies. Every 2 years, new board members, chair and secretary and ExCom members will be elected.
