Digital Health Agency (My Health Record)

The National Allergy Strategy is working with the Australian Digital Health Agency to improve the quality of patient allergy information in My Health Record and to make sure that allergy information can be easily found.

Food allergy prevention

Nip allergies in the Bub is a resource for health professionals and caregivers that provides practical, credible information about infant feeding and optimising eczema management for allergy prevention in babies. See the website at www.preventallergies.org.au.

This project is developing national Best Practice Guidelines and supporting resources for the prevention and management of anaphylaxis in schools and children’s education and care services.

The Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) and Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (A&AA), as the leading medical and patient organisations for allergy in Australia, have developed the first National Allergy Strategy for Australia, in collaboration with other stakeholder organisations.

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.
