The Turkish National Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology was established in 1989. It is the first professional association established in the field of allergy and clinical immunology in Turkey. Its main objective is to advance the allergy and clinical immunology discipline in Turkey while developing well-qualified projects that would be beneficial for the society.
All of the adult and pediatric Allergy and Clinical Immunology specialists in Turkey are members of our association and they aim to provide services for these purposes. We, as the Turkish National Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, support all relevant activities that would contribute to the scientific development of our members.
We provide opportunities for our members to meet and exchange information with leading local and foreign scholars in scientific events.
Our association, which successfully represents Turkey in the field of allergy and clinical immunology worldwide, is a member of the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. Some scientific meetings are being jointly held in Turkey with the contributions of our association.
Moreover, we provide various supports to our members to present their studies in national and international congresses. We also issue country-specific guidelines and “Asthma, Allergy and Immunology Journal”, which publishes scientific studies and can be searched in national database.
We organize public briefings to raise awareness on important days.
We contribute in forming health policies in Turkey by cooperating with various institutions.
Activities of our association are organized by relevant committees and with the contribution of our members. These committees consist of three different boards: management, supervisory and ethics. They are elected by our members biennially.
The management board consists of 7 members and the other two boards have 3 members, respectively.
In addition to these boards, working groups are the most important organs of our association due their scientific productivity. Our members work in scientific solidarity by taking part in these working groups according to their areas of interest.
