The Fungal Infection Trust runs an extensive educational website (Leading International Fungal Education LIFE) that is aimed at the medical professional community throughout the world and highlights the infections caused by all fungi.
LIFE aims to reach all medical practitioners and other healthcare professionals who see and treat fungal infections and those who contribute to the diagnosis such as laboratory workers and radiologists. Clinical expertise, and access to diagnostic facilities are all critical to improving outcomes. Likewise access to antifungal therapies is absolutely necessary for almost all serious fungal infections. The website is also provided in Spanish to facilitate international reach.
An online course on microscopy and histology for fungal disease will be launched in 2016.
Public awareness is important specifically for some diseases such as SAFS and both skin and mucosal fungal infections.
