 How you have helped GAFFI so far? We have prepared the article “Estimating serious fungal disease burden in the Philippines” for publication and presentation at an Asian Medical Mycology conference.
 Personal comment on the major needs in The Philippines which GAFFI should be addressing: GAFFI can help by providing methodological and technical support in the conduct of epidemiological studies on mycoses, training in the diagnosis and management of fungal infections, and by advocating available and affordable fungal diagnostic tests and antifungal medicines.
