World Allergy Week and National Allergy Strategy Funding - 5 April 2019

World Allergy Week 2019World Allergy Week 2019 is from 7-13 April. The international focus this year is on "The Global Problem of Food Allergy".

At this time, Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (A&AA) together with ASCIA (Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy) are calling on the federal government to commit $20m to fund the National Allergy Strategy to deliver better care for Australians living with allergic disease.

We greatly appreciate the funding that has been provided by the Australian Government to implement National Allergy Strategy projects, including funding that was announced by the Health Minister today, Friday 5 April 2019. 

Further long-term support is required to implement larger scale projects. So we encourage anyone who is affected by allergy to support the National Allergy Strategy's $20 million election plea. This plea has been made to all major political parties and you can show your support by signing a petition and sharing it with family and friends.

The petition is open until 13 April 2019, which coincides with the end of World Allergy Week.
