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).

Living with the risk of a severe allergic reaction, or anaphylaxis, takes planning, diligence and clear communication. However, having a severe allergy doesn't mean you have to stop living your life.  With awareness, education and training, those who live with the risk and their families can lead normal, healthy lives.

The information on this website is designed to help individuals, parents and carers of people living with this risk and it should not take the place of personalised treatment and care.  We encourage anyone who suspects they may have an allergy or those who have already been diagnosed to consult their allergist, immunologist, paediatrician or GP for personalised treatment and care.  This includes regular follow-up so that you can access up to date information on managing your risk of anaphylaxis.

Most importantly, never self-diagnose or rely on anecdotal information. There is currently no cure for food allergy. Treatment focuses on managing the condition and increasing community awareness of this potentially life-threatening condition; a national health issue which cannot be ignored.
