World Allergy Week 2019

National Allergy StrategyAs part of World Allergy Week 2019, we encourage anyone who is affected by allergy to support the National Allergy Strategy's $20 million election plea to all major political parties, for long-term funding of National Allergy Strategy initiatives.

You can show your support by signing a petition and sharing it with family and friends.  This petition is open until 13 April 2019,  which coincides with the end of World Allergy Week. 

World Allergy Week 2019

The National Allergy Strategy is a partnership between ASCIA (Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy) and A&AA (Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia), working together with key stakeholders. The National Allergy Strategy, ASCIA and A&AA are greatly appreciative of the funding provided by the Australian Government to implement key urgent initiatives of the National Allergy Strategy, including funding that was announced by the Health Minister on Friday 5 April 2019 which will allow the continuation of these important projects.  However, further long-term support is required, to enable the implementation of larger scale projects to help combat the rise in allergy and improve the health and wellbeing of people living with allergic diseases.

National Allergy Strategy Rationale
