Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (A&AA) is a charitable, not for profit organisation established in 1993. Our aim is to improve awareness of allergy in the Australian community. We do this by sharing current information, education, advocacy, research, guidance and support. We are primarily a volunteer based organisation that is supported by membership fees, sale of resources and donations. Our outreach extends to individuals, families, school, workplaces, health professionals, government, food industry and all Australians. Living with one or more allergic conditions can impact on your quality of life. Talk to us if you need to know more or need to be pointed in the right direction. With more than 20 years experience and a Medical Advisory Board to consult for advice, we’ll do our best to assist you in a world where research into allergic disease continues. For some questions, there are currently no answers but we can support you. We are part of an international alliance of like-minded organisations and work closely with peak medical bodies including the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA).
Anaphylaxis Campaign is the only UK wide charity to exclusively meet the needs of the growing numbers of people at risk from severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) by providing information and support relating to foods and other triggers such as latex, drugs and insect stings. This year, 2014, we celebrate our 20 year anniversary.
Our ultimate aim is to create a safe environment for all people with allergies by educating the food industry, schools, pre-schools, colleges, health professionals and other key audiences. Our focus is on medical facts, food labelling, risk reduction and allergen management.
The AllergyWise online programmes, developed by the Campaign, provide training for families, carers and individuals as well as for health professionals.
The Campaign provides tailored services for individual and clinical professional members and also has a corporate membership programme.
