You are here

For teens (13–17 years old)

We have some advice about living with primary immunodeficiency (PI) for you. You probably get support from those who know you best—your family, friends, teachers, and coaches. But not everyone understands what it’s like to have PI, so IDF can also connect you to other teens with PI. Remember, we’re here to help you!

For young adults (18–25 years old)

IDF wants to help you manage living with primary immunodeficiency (PI), including your health, insurance, education, and relationships. You get support from your family and friends, but IDF can provide you with advice and resources to help you cope with a wide variety of issues related to having PI.

Volunteer with IDF

Get involved with IDF to help other young people living with PI.
