SCID NEWBORN SCREENING
IDFA is raising awareness of SCID (Severe Combined Immune Deficiency) this year and campaigning for SCID newborn screening to be added to the Guthrie test. Support SCID newborn screening by signing our petition form and/or donate through Direct Donation through Westpac Reference “SCID Donation” to raise $1, 000, 000 for a NSW pilot study and research into this disease.
We encourage members to raise awareness by taking IDFA resource packs to your GP, Immunologist, hospital or other healthcare professionals. Call us on 1800 100 198 to order a pack for your GP.
