The Immune Deficiencies Foundation Australia is a not-for-profit organisation and registered charity caring for people who have Primary Immune Deficiencies (PID).
An immune deficiency is also commonly referred to as an immune disease, immune disorder or immunodeficiency. An Immune Deficiency is a disorder where the immune response is reduced or absent. PIDs are caused by defects in the genes that control the immune system, so people with PID are born missing some or all of the parts of the immune system.
Our members range from babies to seniors and are from all over Australia. They have chronic and complex health issues. Many struggle to make life as normal as possible within the restrictions placed on them by their illness. IDFA offers education and social and emotional support for PID patients and their families.
