National Allergy Strategy Speech

13 August 2015:

Anna Burke, MP speaking in Parliament about the launch of the National Allergy Strategy.

More than 4 million Australians are affected by allergic disease. Last week saw the launch of the National Allergy Strategy, which if implemented across Australia has the potential to save lives and improve the quality of life for people living with allergies and anaphylaxis. Well done Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia for continuing the hard work of advocating for improved standards of care and recognition from government.

National Allergy Strategy Rationale

Allergic diseases have become an increasingly important chronic disease and public health issue in Australia and other developed countries over the last two decades, contributing to increased demand for medical services, significant economic cost of care and reduced quality of life of people with allergic diseases and their carers.
