Motor Neurone Disease Australia (MND Australia) is the Peak body of the State MND Associations and was formed in 1991 in response to the increasing number of people (and their families and carers) living with motor neurone disease (MND) in Australia. In 2004/5 MND Australia undertook a major strategic review to develop an even stronger vision and direction, designed to bring practical and consistent support to those in need all over this country, with relevant and appropriate international alliances.
The MND Australia network comprises of six state Associations, representing all states and territories, and our research arm - the MND Research Institute of Australia (MNDRIA). MND Australia members work together to advance, promote and influence local and national efforts to achieve the vision of a World Free From MND.

MND Australia is a member of the International Alliance of ALS/MND Associations, the peak body for national organisations who support people living with ALS/MND.
