We were thrilled to recently learn that our friends and colleagues in allergy representation on the large island to our west, had achieved a huge $26.9million injection of Government support for allergy communities in Australia.
We know the small team at Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (AAA) and The National Allergy Strategy (NAS) very well. We also know the years of hard work and resilience they have put in to achieve this fantastic recognition of the needs of the allergy community they so passionately represent.
We noted with interest that the alignment of a collective position on allergy prevention and management within their medical and clinical networks, was critical to the momentum and ultimate success of their national allergy campaign.
So, take a bow, AAA and NAS and your supporters. You have set the bar and we will follow your example to convince our own Government that the needs of New Zealanders living with allergies are no less deserving.
