FOOD ALLERGY GOALS
Together we can take the first step towards achieving our #FoodAllergyGoals!
WHAT IS FOOD ALLERGY GOALS ALL ABOUT?
Australian families living with food allergies are not given very much hope for a better future. We are told to learn to live with the ever present fear of life threatening anaphylaxis because there is no cure. The only consolation we have is access to rescue medication in the form of adrenaline.
In recent years the exclusive supplier of adrenaline auto-injectors, or EpiPens, in Australia have experienced manufacturing issues which have limited supply of this life saving medication on numerous occasions. Currently there is, yet again, a shortage of the both the EpiPen and the EpiPen Jr product.
We are calling on the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) to facilitate an order approving a substitute auto-injector product to be used for the purposes of this and any future shortages of adrenaline auto-injectors in Australia.
Let’s come together to deliver an urgent and unified message to the pharmaceutical regulators of Australia. We need to find a workable solution to this ongoing problem. Interruptions to the supply of this product are life threatening. Other countries recognise this - when will we?

By coming together we can demonstrate just how many Australians are impacted by disruptions to supply of this life saving medicine.
