Mission StatementTo support services and research for all those impacted by muscular dystrophy and allied conditions.
DescriptionMuscular Dystrophy organisations around Australia are committed to fostering and nurturing a community of support for the children, young people, adults and families whose lives are affected by neuromuscular disorders. We have been serving people in Australia for over 50 years, the first established in South Australia on 4 August 1954. Since then, associations have been established in each state. Muscular Dystrophy Foundation Australia was established in 2005 to provide a truly national voice concerning Muscular Dystrophy, to advocate for and achieve greater awareness of the condition and to support research.
