Schools and children’s education and care services

The National Allergy Strategy has engaged with key stakeholders in the school and children's education and care (CEC) sectors to develop Best practice guidelines for the prevention and management of anaphylaxis along with a number of supporting resources.

The range of useful resources are available from the National Allergy Strategy's Allergy Aware website, which is a resource hub for schools and children's education and care services - www.allergyaware.org.au 

The Allergy Aware site hosts links to national, state and territory existing legislation, procedures and guidelines which schools and CEC services are required to be compliant with.

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.
