Minister HuntThe National Allergy Strategy event on 16 August at Parliament House Canberra was a great success with Minister Hunt announcing five years of funding for the National Allergy Strategy.

We would like to thank Minister Hunt, Minister Wyatt, Senator Richard Di Natale (Parliamentary Allergy Alliance Co-convenor), Catherine King, Tony Zappia MP (Parliamentary Allergy Alliance Co-convenor) and Russell Broadbent MP (Parliamentary Allergy Alliance Co-convenor) for their ongoing support of the National Allergy Strategy.
