Global Focus. Local Help.
The International FPIES Association’s mission is to create and implement FPIES awareness campaigns and support channels in all countries where access to information about FPIES is critically lacking. After all, awareness is an integral part of diagnosing this condition, and an early diagnosis can make a huge difference in the battle against FPIES. Learn more about I-FPIES global efforts below:

We foster strong relationships with world-renowned physicians and medical centers to advance research, dialogue and awareness about FPIES. Our Medical Advisory Board reflects the truly international nature of our research and initiatives, as members hail from North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
Our Medical Advisory Board has also joined forces with the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) and other leading international FPIES researchers to develop the first consensus guidelines for FPIES. Developed by a panel of 27 experts, these guidelines provide a formal course of action for diagnosing and managing FPIES while also outlining research needs. Learn more.
I-FPIES is also expanding global FPIES awareness and education by creating international branches in countries such as Australia, Brazil, Italy, the United Kingdom, and beyond. Each chapter is led by a medical chair with expertise in FPIES and who works cohesively with our Medical Advisory Board.
If you are an international supporter interested in creating an I-FPIES chapter in your country, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
