0 comment(s)

Today, May 5th at the ISHAM conference GAFFI has launched the project ‘95-95 by 2025’ at Melbourne in Australia, calling on all national governments and public health agencies to reduce the toll of death and blindness from fungal diseases. 95-95 means 95 percent of patients with life or sight-threatening fungal disease are diagnosed and 95 percent treated. Currently the figures are at best 50 percent and, at worst, as low as one in three.

GAFFI states that:
