Australia Lyme Disease

Tick Bite Prevention may not be the solution if the causative agents of the Lyme like Illness in Australia is not properly identified.
 
While there may be an association of diseases that present like a Lyme Illness making diagnosis particularly difficult and treatment challenging.
 

Advocacy

Research is needed to identify the causative agents and present undisputable facts to the myriad of interested parties. While public awareness grows the various levels of Government and members of the medical profession are slow to consider the possibility of Lyme Disease in Australia. The Medical Association of Australia recognises experts have failed to resolve the suggestion of endemic Lyme Disease in Australia.

None the less the few Doctors that can recognise and treat Lyme Like Illness are grossly under resourced and in heavy demand.
