The International Association for Food and Waterborne Parasitology (IAFWP) is the parent organization of the Elsevier-published journal, Food and Waterborne Parasitology (FAWPAR). Founded in 2014, the mission of the IAFWP is to promote and facilitate research and collaboration among those who are interested in food and waterborne parasitology for the generation and exchange of information that will advance public health parasitology, and to foster the application of such knowledge into approaches, methods, guidelines, recommendations and other outputs for use by standard-setting bodies, regulatory authorities, food producers, consumers and other stakeholders in reducing the global burden of parasites transmitted by food or water. The primary work of the IAFWP is accomplished through publication of FAWPAR.
