Implementing the National Allergy Strategy: From paper to practice

NAS 250K16 August 2018

To celebrate the achievements of the National Allergy Strategy, a lunch time event “Implementing the National Allergy Strategy: From paper to practice” was held at Parliament House in Canberra today, 16 August 2018.

Minister Hunt, Senator Di Natale, Minister Wyatt and Catherine King MP spoke at the event along with National Allergy Strategy Co-chairs A/Prof Richard Loh and Ms Maria Said and two people living with allergic disease who shared their experiences, Ms Jaclyn Jauhiainen and Mr Barry Hickey. 

Development of the National Allergy Strategy has enabled the identification of strategies to improve and optimise the management of allergic disease and help prevent food allergy where possible. We continue to increase awareness of allergic disease nationwide in line with our mission to improve the health and wellbeing, and therefore the quality of life of individuals with allergic conditions and those who care for them.

National Allergy Strategy Rationale

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.
