Clinical Advisory Committee on Lyme Disease
The LDAA performs a number of important functions relating to the Clinical Advisory Committee on Lyme Disease (CACLD) established and currently run by the Australian Government. The first is having secured a place for a patient representative on the committee to ensure patient requirements are sufficiently and adequately represented. The second is to respond to requests for public submissions from the CACLD by way of development and production of appropriate researched and informed responses.

Patient surveys and statistical collection
As many would be aware Lyme Disease in Australia is not currently notifiable so it is important the LDAA collects and collates necessary data to inform on-going strategy and development of necessary submissions and counter-arguments. If you are more visual head to our statistics section to see the reality of Lyme disease in Australia.
