To achieve its goals, LIFE needs local and international partners and individuals to contribute. Specific contributions that would be most helpful include:

  • Contributing to integration of fungal diagnostics into microbiology or mycology labs
  • Local validation of diagnostic tests for national regulatory purposes or direct clinical care.
  • Physician training in the best use of fungal diagnostic tests and antifungal treatments.
  • Working with hospital management, state/provincial/county and national authorities to commission and implement appropriate diagnostic testing for Fungal Infection locally.
  • Research into the frequency and burden of Fungal Infection in your area.
  • Research into the impact of Fungal Infection on patients’ lives, such as disability-adjusted life years (DALY), quality-adjusted life years (QALY), quality-adjusted life expectancy (QALE) assessments.
  • Research into the impact of antifungal treatment on quality of life. 
  • Implementation of therapeutic drug monitoring for itraconazole, voriconazole, posaconazole and flucytosine. Methods available here 
  • Local fund raising and running public awareness campaigns similar to the UK art and music competition.
