The Anaphylaxis Campaign
The Anaphylaxis Campaign is a national charity set up in 1994 following the deaths of four people from allergic reactions to nuts. The Campaign provides support and information to the growing number of people who are at risk from life-threatening allergic reactions (anaphylaxis), particularly to foods, and works vigorously to achieve a safer environment for all those with severe allergies.
Life can be traumatic and uncertain for people with severe allergies, with an emergency dash to hospital an ever present possibility, every day of the year. The Anaphylaxis Campaign is the only organisation that exclusively meets the needs of this group.
- To advance the education and general understanding of the public concerning life-threatening allergies and associated disorders.
- To protect the health of people who suffer severe allergic reactions by providing help and information to them, their families and friends.
- To promote research into the cause and care of severe allergic conditions and to publish the results of such research.
- All the Campaign's advisers are prominent, respected allergy experts working within the NHS.
