World Atopic Eczema Day -14 September 2020

Today, on World Atopic Eczema Day, Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (A&AA) pleads with Sanofi Australia and The Hon Greg Hunt MP to announce Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) listing of Dupixent so Australians like Acacia can have their lives back. Acacia was fortunate to access the life changing medication on compassionate grounds in late 2019.

A&AA advocates for Australians to have access to range of medications to treat eczema more effectively. Doctors and individuals with eczema need to be able to choose the treatment that best suits their needs.

Acacia bravely shares her story of triumph despite all odds. Her amazing story of life with severe eczema gives hope to so many. Access to Dupixent (a recently registered medication in Australia), at an affordable cost is so close, yet so far. We have patiently waited for this life changing medication to be placed on the PBS long enough.
