SFFA is an organization that brings together physicians and other professionals with a special interest in allergological diseases. The association is the Swedish Medical Society's Allergy Research. Since 2008 it is also part of the Association of the Swedish Medical Association specialty compound for Allergology (adults).
In SFFAs Board includes representatives of the medical specialties dealing with allergy diseases (vuxenallergolog, lungmed, barnallergologi, immunology, ENT, skin, primary care). Within SFFA there is also a specialitetsråd six specialists in vuxenallergologi (one of these can be in training) to monitor and deal with issues related to the specialty. As a specialist in Allergology should therefore be involved in both compounds.
