The National Allergy Strategy pre-budget submission was based on discussions with stakeholders, the National Allergy Strategy Steering Committee and Working Groups, and the following three areas were identified as the most urgent projects requiring funding:

  • Resources for teens and young adults, particularly those at risk of anaphylaxis and those with food allergy.
  • Food allergy resources for food service including restaurants, cafes etc.
  • Drug allergy, particularly antibiotic allergy.

To date the National Allergy Strategy has not received any government funding.

The pre-budget submission is currently with Minister Ley and is being considered. Please show your support for the National Allergy Strategy, by contacting your local member of parliament and/or writing to Minister Ley.
