This month’s meeting took place at the 8th Advances Against Aspergillosis international meeting in Lisbon, Portugal. The purpose of the meeting was to support aspergillosis patients & carers in Portugal, invited to the meeting but also non-specialist clinicians so the first part of the meeting tells the audience about the National Aspergillosis Centre in Manchester, its development, its clinical services and patient support much of which is also available to Portuguese patients, carers and clinicians. We then have a talk from Beth Bradshaw on how we try to help our patients & carers avoid pitfalls when accessing information & support on the internet and last but not least Rachel Orritt launches the new World Aspergillosis Day which will recur every year on February 1st.
