Welcome

Welcome to HAE Australasia. HAE Australasia is a new not for profit patient advocacy organisation, dedicated to providing support to Australian and New Zealand HAE patients and their families, as well as raising awareness of hereditary angioedema resulting from C1-inhibitor deficiency. HAE Australasia has been founded by HAE patients and HAE patient caregivers.

At HAE Australasia, HAE stands for more than Hereditary Angioedema;

  • Hope for the future
  • Advocacy for better treatment options
  • Education for patients and care-givers

We hope that this website helps to answer some of the questions you may have about Hereditary Angioedema. Whether you are a sufferer yourself, are newly diagnosed, not yet diagnosed, or know someone who is a sufferer, you are not alone. If you do not find answers to your questions, or you would like a confidential chat, please get in touch with us. We are here to support you.

Don't forget to check back regularly for updates on planned patient meetings, current studies taking place and other news.

Please don't hesitate to contact us for any further information.
