Working to defeat MND

Motor Neurone Disease Australia is the national voice representing all Australians who share the vision of a world without MND.

Drawing on 35 years of experience, MND Australia works with a national network of State MND Associations to advocate, educate and raise awareness. Our goal is to empower Australians impacted by MND to live better for longer.

Until there is a cure, MND Australia’s research arm, the MND Research Institute of Australia, will promote and fund the best research with the greatest chance of making MND treatable.

Differences were underpinned by a common passion and commitment to improve the lives of people living with this devastating disease and their families.
