Breastfeeding and Allergy Prevention with the aha! Swiss Allergy Centre.

The aha! Swiss Allergy Centre offers a wealth of educational information about the causes, prevention and treatment of allergies and intolerances, and breastfeeding’s leading role in allergy prevention. Resources for healthcare professionals and the public are available, covering topics such as allergies/intolerances, asthma, eczema/skin reactions.

The aha! Swiss Allergy Centre and FLRF believe that education is essential to raising awareness and increasing the practice of breastfeeding as a valuable allergy prevention measure. To achieve those goals, the center compiled a comprehensive summary of the latest research findings on breastfeeding and allergies/atopic diseases in collaboration with experts in allergology. The findings are being used to update and create educational materials for health specialists and people affected by allergies, as well as their families.

The aha! Swiss Allergy Centre is disseminating the educational resources via its many service offerings, such as the aha!infoline where trained advisors provide personalized consultations, informational workshops for parents, and professional development courses and training modules.

The partners hope that by integrating the topic of breastfeeding and allergy prevention into the services of the center, understanding and acceptance of breastfeeding as a preventative measure against allergies will increase among healthcare professionals and the general public alike.
