Message from President
I am honored to be the first president of PAAIS. I understand that specialty of allergy is not much developed in Pakistan but I am sure with the help of my motivated team and with the help of my international colleagues we will be able to develop it. Although at the individual level we all have tried to create awareness about allergy and immune diseases in medical professionals and in general public but now we are going to make joint efforts under PAAIS and with the collaboration of World Allergy Organization. Our main aim will be to create awareness, training of doctors in specialty of allergy and Immunology. At the moment it is not included in the curriculum of the medical schools of the country and there are no departments of Allergy and Immunology in Pakistan, we will try with the support of WAO and International experts to make curriculum and introduce as separate specialty in the country. God Bless you all..
