MND Australia is an active member of the International Alliance of ALS/MND Associations, the peak body for national organisations that support people living with motor neurone disease (MND). 
International ALS/MND Symposium 2011, SydneyMND is a global problem. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity or demographic.   It is a devastating disease that affects over 350,000 of the world’s people and kills over 100,000 people every year (International Alliance of ALS/MND Associations).
  
MND Australia is an active member of the International Alliance of ALS/MND Associations (International Alliance), the peak body for national organisations that support people living with MND.  Currently, more than 50 national patient support and advocacy groups from over 40 countries worldwide are members of the International Alliance.

In 2013, the National Executive Director of MND Australia, Carol Birks was elected Chairperson of the International Alliance. 

Through the International Alliance we share and exchange knowledge, experiences and resources to ensure the best possible care and support will be made available to people affected by MND from around the world.

Each year members of the International Alliance gather to share ideas, information and intiatives to improve the outcomes of all people living with MND. The 24th meeting of the International Alliance in Dublin, Ireland was attended by over 110 delegates from 30 countries.
