Allergy is a public health problem of pandemic proportions that affects more than 150 million people in Europe, where it is the most common chronic disease. According to experts, 1 out of every 3 children has an allergy and they expect the disease to affect more than 50% of all Europeans in 10 years’ time.

To help the community to better understand this illness and its consequences, which are often severe, the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) launched a campaign that emphasises the number of people who are ‘trapped’ by allergy.

The Allergy Awareness Campaign is led by EAACI and has the invaluable cooperation of the following partners and sponsors:

Nacional Societies
Società Italiana di Allergologia, Asma ed Immunologia Clinica
Sociedad Española de Alergología e Inmunología Clínica
Società Italiana di Immunologia e Allergologia Pediatrica

Patient Organisations
Astma-Allergi Danmark

National Pharmacists Associations
Pharmaceutical Group of European Union
All-Ukrainian Association of Pharmacists
Croatian Chamber of Pharmacists
Consejo General de Colegios Oficiales de Farmacéuticos


The Allergy Awareness Campaign is structured as a series of waves focusing on different aspects of allergic diseases.
