National Allergy Strategy receives further funding from the Australian government

26 June 2017

The National Allergy Strategy will receive $1 million over the next two years to implement a national allergy prevention program.  The funding announcement was made by Minister Gillespie at the launch of the National Allergy Strategy Youth Project resource launch, a project also funded by the Australian government.

Implementation of the ASCIA guidelines for infant feeding and allergy prevention will help reduce the development of food allergy.  Preventing the development of food allergy will not only greatly improve the quality of life of individuals and their families, but it will assist in reducing the burden on state and federal governments, individuals with allergy and the Australian community.

National Allergy Strategy Rationale
