Australian Vaccination-risks Network

The Australian Vaccination-risks Network Inc., formerly known as the Australian Vaccination-Skeptics Network, and before that known as the Australian Vaccination Network (AVN), is an Australian anti-vaccination pressure group registered in New South Wales. As Australia's most controversial anti-vaccination organisation, it has lobbied against a variety of vaccination-related programs, downplayed the danger of childhood diseases such as measles and pertussis, championed the cause of alleged vaccination victims, and promoted the use of ineffective alternatives such as homeopathy and chiropractic.
