Abstract

India is a Low-Middle Income Country (LMIC) with a population of ~1.3bn. It is the second most populous country comprising 20% of the global population. Whilst India has not faced an 'allergy epidemic' as in High Income Countries (HICs), there is some evidence that the burden of allergic diseases has gradually risen1, and is greatly magnified by the absolute numbers and is compounded by the unmet demand for allergy services2,3. Data regarding epidemiology, risk factors and natural course of allergic diseases in India are relatively sparse. By virtue of considerable diversity in culture, breast feeding, infections including parasitic, diet, environmental conditions such as weather, aero-allergens, and unacceptably high levels of particulate matter ≤2.5µm (PM ), India offers an invaluable platform to study immune-mediated diseases .
