COVID-19 and Its Impact on People With Asthma and Allergies: A Global Health Crisis

 

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) has been fighting to save lives for nearly 70 years. With your support, we provide education, conduct patient-centered research and advocate for protections for our community. Our experience and strong community ties allowed us to take prompt action on the COVID-19 crisis.

Thanks to your generous support, we are leading the fight against COVID-19 for people with asthma and allergies. But we need your help to continue to provide COVID-19 relief

SUPPORT AAFA'S COVID-19 RELIEF FUND

Since the new coronavirus that causes COVID-19 emerged, AAFA took immediate action to:

  • Track its progression through the U.S. and communicate updates to our community
  • Conduct a survey about the real-life impacts on families
  • Develop a symptom-checker tool with our experts
  • Provide guidance for people with asthma, eczema and food allergies as new data emerges
  • Work with federal and state governments to ensure people have access to asthma medicines and health care
  • Urge governors to enact a coordinated action plan to reduce the spread of the disease
  • Meet with pharmaceutical companies about drug shortage concerns
  • Meet with manufacturers to discuss how they can support our community during this crisis
  • Join a task force led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to advocate for people at risk from COVID-19


Our work is not finished. People are still struggling with the impact of the pandemic – from missing in-clinic treatments and drug shortages to loss of employment and health insurance. COVID-19 has made our community more vulnerable than ever. Please give as generously as possible to help us all get through this together.

Donate now to our COVID-19 relief fund to help us continue our life-saving work to keep families safe.
