In particular, this year’s World Environment Day theme is air pollution. Whether indoor or outdoor, pollution contributes to 6.4 million premature deaths because of poor air quality (WHO). Exposure to pollutants has adverse health impacts particularly for respiratory diseases, including allergies and asthma.
Linking World Environment Day to the EAACI Goes Green campaign, this year’s EAACI Annual Congress 2019 will highlight particular plenary symposia, sessions, oral abstract sessions and posters, related to the theme of “Allergy and Environment”. Top level researchers and clinicians will share knowledge and their expertise to discuss and tackle this global and borderless problem.
By joining our forces and contributing to this worldwide initiative we can together map a more sustainable world.
