Primary Immunodeficiency Network of South Africa

Welcome!

to the website of the Primary Immunodeficiency Network of South Africa.

Primary Immunodeficiency (PID) is an inherited or genetic set of diseases that, because they can present themselves as a common infection, often go undiagnosed. There are over 200 types of PID. It is for this reason that this association was formed as one of its functions is to create awareness.

 

PID is not AIDS, although both disorders affect the immune system; it is an inherited or genetic condition, i.e. passed down from one or both parents and it is therefore not infectious.

 

The other main function of the association is to support those with the condition through information and counselling. Although primarily a patient/family group, there is a medical advisory panel doctor who is able to answer questions.


The links on this site are particularly useful as they take you to the main international organisations that deal with primary immunodeficiencies.
