The National Allergy Strategy is a partnership between the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) and Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia, the leading medical and patient support organisations in Australia. The National Allergy Strategy document was developed with key stakeholder organisations and provides an overarching framework for a national response to the rise in allergic diseases. It identifies the most effective ways to:

  • Address allergic disease as a chronic disease and manage it with a public health approach;
  • Provide an effective and coordinated plan to guide future actions to optimise the management of allergic diseases in Australia; and
  • Improve the health and quality of life of people with allergic diseases, their carers and the community.

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.
