Food Allergy Week 2019: Be Aware. Show You Care

Food Allergy Week (26 May – 1 June) is an initiative by Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia that aims to increase community awareness about food allergy in an effort to promote understanding and ultimately help protect those at risk.

One of the biggest challenges Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia faces is ensuring that Australians receive the right advice and support when it comes to allergy management.he organisation is encouraging people with allergy, or carers of those with allergy, to utilise their free services which include sharing up-to-date, evidence-based information and support.

There are several ways people can support Food Allergy Week:

Given that Australia has one of the highest rates of food allergy in the world, helping to communicate the importance of understanding food allergy and raising awareness and much needed funds for allergy education is of vital importance.
