World Aspergillosis Day is dedicated to Aspergillosis, a set of diseases caused by the fungus Aspergillus. The day is observed to focus attention on the disease and to spread awareness about its treatment and prevention. Aspergillus is a common fungus or mold that can be found indoors and outdoors. Many people unwittingly inhale the infectious spores, putting them at risk of diseases.

This year will mark the fifth World Aspergillosis Day (WAD 2022). The aim of World Aspergillosis Day is to raise awareness of a fungal infection that is often under-diagnosed like many other fungal infections worldwide.

This year, we will be highlighting the experiences of those living with aspergillosis and looking at the impact of the disease.
