Who we are

The National Allergy Council is a partnership between the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) and Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (A&AA).

Through our important projects we deliver a wide range of educational resources and training programs to help improve the lives of five million Australians living with allergy. 

We advocate for improving access to quality allergy care and improved management of allergies, particularly severe allergies across all sectors of the community.
