It is dedicated to uniting the experience, resources, and expertise of its members to achieve nationwide improvement in the care and treatment of individuals with PIDs.

Affected individuals may be abnormally prone to certain infections, susceptible to particular forms of cancer, and/or have additional characteristic symptoms and findings. CIPO is committed to establishing a central database of affected individuals in Canada; creating an electronic library; and supporting and encouraging the development of support groups. It is also dedicated to creating a directory of physicians currently diagnosing and treating individuals with PIDs in Canada; providing networking opportunities to affected individuals and families; and educating the medical community, affected families, and general public about primary immunodeficiencies.
