EAACI - Focused meeting
2 - 4 November 2023
The burden of allergic diseases and asthma in children has been significantly increasing during the last years, among other reasons due to differences in lifestyles, age of food introduction and industrialization. Allergy is a multi‐system disorder, and children often have several co‐existing diseases, i.e. allergic rhinitis, asthma, eczema and food allergy.
These diseases can be debilitating or even life-threatening, and impact multiple aspects of daily life, including school, travel, dining, sleeping and socialising. Families of allergic children and children themselves often face anxiety and stress and need to adapt to diagnoses, management and treatment.
A cooperative partnership between clinicians managing children with allergic conditions in the hospital, emergency services, regulatory authorities, academia, schools, parents, and the child is necessary to ensure allergic children are protected. PAAM 2023 provides the platform for ensuring that research and science trickles down to this effect and allows experts worldwide to gain and share knowledge on the most current developments.
