NAS Pre budget submission 2017

Allergic diseases affect 1 in 5 Australians and are amongst the fastest growing medical conditions.

To address this problem, the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology (ASCIA) and Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (A&AA), as the leading medical and patient organisations for allergy in Australia, developed a National Allergy Strategy in collaboration with other key stakeholder organisations.

The National Allergy Strategy aims to address public health issues relating to the rapid and continuing rise of allergy in Australia and improve the health and quality of life of people with allergic diseases, their carers and the community.

The attached pre-budget submission has been made on behalf of individuals with allergic conditions to progress urgent initiatives of the National Allergy Strategy.

Rationale for the
National Allergy Strategy

Allergic diseases have become an increasingly important chronic disease and public health issue in Australia and other developed countries over the last two decades, contributing to increased demand for medical services, significant economic cost of care and reduced quality of life of people with allergic diseases and their carers.
