The National Allergy Council is a progression of the National Allergy Strategy and remains a partnership between the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) and Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (A&AA), working in consultation with key stakeholder organisations.
The National Allergy Council projects are overseen by an Advisory Committee which also comprises project Co-lead representatives from ASCIA and A&AA along with a representative from the National Allergy Centre of Excellence (NACE).
Why has the National Allergy Strategy become the National Allergy Council?
The National Allergy Council is a formalisation of the equal partnership between ASCIA and A&AA. The National Allergy Council will continue to progress the projects initiated under the National Allergy Strategy.
The National Allergy Strategy is the document which provides guidance on what work needs to be undertaken to improve the health and wellbeing of Australians living with allergic diseases including reducing the burden on carers, healthcare services and the community.
