For over 30 years, the Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) has offered a full spectrum of educational publications, programs and resources developed by experts for patients, families and healthcare professionals. Many of IDF's resources have been translated into other languages, and many of IDF's publications have been used as the basis for translations from other National Organizations as well.
