Facility to use placebo and active devices in demonstration modules. Branding on the mobile post-learning reference app obtained by each person successfully completing the course.

Concluding Comments

AFSA advocates for and supports the needs of people with allergic disease.  Allergies are increasing rapidly in South Africa and becoming more severe.  This unique opportunity aims to fill a massive need for the training of doctors, nurses, pharmacists and others in the management of common allergic conditions. We believe there is significant synergy between this initiative and companies that are active in the sale and marketing of pharmaceutical and other products used by allergy sufferers.
