Allergy funding not to be sneezed at

The Federal Government has announced it will invest more than half a million dollars in projects to improve the lives of Australians who live with allergies.

It will fund projects identified as part a National Allergy Strategy, which was developed by the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy and Allergy and Anaphylaxis Australia.

Projects include development of standardised food allergy content to be included in all accredited food hygiene courses, and the development of online resources for teens and young adults with allergies to share their experiences.

Another project will determine how to improve access to care for people with allergic conditions, particularly those in rural and remote areas.

Allergies can have significant adverse effects on the quality of life and overall health of people, and affect about 20 per cent of the Australian population living with allergies.

About 4.5 million Australians are affected by hay fever and allergic rhinitis, while one in 20 Australian children and one in 50 adults has a food allergy.
