Our work and advocacy
A&AA develops a variety of resources and educational materials, organises workshops and seminars, hosts a telephone helpline and social media pages to assist with managing the allergic conditions including the risk of anaphylaxis. A&AA has partnered with the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) to progress the National Allergy Strategy. The National Allergy Strategy aims to improve the health and quality of life of Australians with allergic disease, and minimise the burden of allergic diseases on individuals, their carers, healthcare services and the community. A&AA also works with various federal, state and local government departments, non-government organisations, schools, children’s services, workplaces and other settings to improve the care and quality of life of Australians living with allergic disease.
A&AA works with Food Standards Australia New Zealand, the Australian Food and Grocery Council, the Allergen Bureau, food industry and state health departments to improve food options for people who live with food allergy. We also provide advice and expertise to those who enforce the Food Standards Code.

The Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) and Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (A&AA), as the leading medical and patient organisations for allergy in Australia, are developing a National Allergy Strategy for Australia, in collaboration with other stakeholder organisations.
The purpose of the National Allergy Strategy is to address public health issues relating to the rapid and continuing rise of allergy in Australia and improve the health and quality of life of people with allergic diseases, their carers and the community.
