About us

 

The Swiss Peanut Allergy and Anaphylaxis Association is a tax-exempt and not-for-profit patient and self-help group for persons affected by severe food allergies, especially peanut allergy, and anaphylactic reactions. Almost all of our work is voluntary.

 

In accordance with the articles of the association, the purpose of the association is to make information on all aspects of peanut allergy and anaphylaxis available to the broader public. Many of our members (also) have other allergies, or other food allergies with potential anaphylactic reaction.

 

Please also visit us on Facebook, Instagram or our group "Erdnussallergie & Anaphylaxie" on LinkedIn.com. For our members, we also have an internal forum which is only accessible for our registered members (search for Forum Erdnussallergie und Anaphylaxie) and request to be admitted, after you have registered as a member.

 

We are very proud that in 2014, our founder and chair, Angelica Dünner, was awarded an aha!Award for founding and leading our patient organsiation and that in 2017, our organisation received a Digital Health Heroes Award for our Facebook-Site.
