The Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) is a nonprofit, national, voluntary, health organization dedicated to promoting and supporting research into the causes, prevention, treatment, and cure of primary immunodeficiency diseases; gathering and disseminating information concerning research and treatment of these diseases; increasing public awareness; and establishing chapters in each State. Primary Immunodeficiency diseases (ranging in prevalence from 1 in 500 individuals to 30 to 50 cases yearly in the U.S.) are a group of diseases which occur when part of the body's immune system components is missing or does not function properly. This organization is supported by grants and donations from concerned individuals and groups.
