Her Eminence Sedighe Tahere Fatimeh (S) Primary Immunodeficiency Charitable Society was established in Isfahan Province.
Primary immunodeficiency is a disease that is caused by a deficiency in the immune system of the human organs (cells and proteins) as the result of which the affected organs can no more stand against infections caused by bacteria, parasites, and viruses.
In view of the proposal submitted by DR. Ms. Roya Sherkat, the prime immunologist and allergy subspecialist, an independent charity for the primary immunodeficiency patients was established in 2009 with the support extended by a number of patients’ family members, charity donors, and subspecialists. The prime mandate of this society is to extend financial and spiritual support to the primary immunodeficiency patients in the fields of research, preventive measures and provision of drugs. Presently Dr. Ms. Roya Sherkat, the chairperson of the society’s board of directors, is the president of the society.
