Because it is such a rare condition, individuals living with Chronic Granulomatous Disease (CGD) can feel alone in the world at times. Meeting other individuals who live with CGD is a way to both gather knowledge and acquire an important sense of connection with others who share your experience.

Peer Support

Social Networks

IDF has developed two social networks dedicated to those living with all types of primary immunodeficiency diseases (PI). These online communities give those affected by PI the opportunity to offer and receive peer support, ask questions, make suggestions, share their stories, and connect with others.
