The Hong Kong Allergy Association
The Hong Kong Allergy Association (Allergy HK) was founded by allergy patients, their caregivers, and medical professionals in 2008 as an allergy patients self-help group. Allergic conditions (including asthma, eczema, rhinitis and food allergy) are one of the most prevalent chronic diseases in Hong Kong. Worse still, severe allergic reactions can be life threatening and have enormous impact on patients’ daily lives. Despite the increasing prevalence of allergy in Hong Kong, its awareness is low and education remains inadequate.
