How you have helped GAFFI so far? We have welcomed the efforts on establishing data on the global burden of fungal diseases world wide by providing data for Denmark. These have been presented as a poster at ECCMID 2014 conference and is now published, Mortensen 2015
Personal comment on the major needs in Denmark which GAFFI should be addressing: Better diagnostics for invasive Candida and Aspergillus infections. Promote the urgent need for susceptibility testing of all clinically relevant Aspergillus isolates. Need for non-azole oral antifungal treatment for rVVC.
