Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases

The Primary Immunodeficiency program is an initiative by Indian Academy of Pediatrics to create a nationally available program for the early detection and diagnosis of inborn errors of immunity in children.

It aims to solve the problem of over 95% of treatable inborn errors of immunity cases remaining undiagnosed, leading to morbidities and death.


The Primary immunodeficiency program includes:

1. New National Red Flag Guidelines published by IAP for early detection of inborn errors of immunity/ primary immunodeficiency.

The red flag guidelines for Primary immunodeficiency program are available here:

2. Training on Red Flag Guidelines to the pediatricians by IAP.

3. Self assessment tools and education videos which the pediatrician may use with the patients.

4. Specialists from the IAP Primary Immunodeficiency chapter accessible through the system for consultation

Pediatric immunologists who are members of PHO Chapter of IAP may join the program and make their services available to general pediatricians by clicking here and filling up the enquiry form.

Any qualifying expert or service provider may join the system to deliver the services.
