Motor Neurone Disease Australia
is the national voice representing state MND associations and people living with MND in Australia.  

MND Australia works in collaboration with the state MND associations to help Australians impacted by MND live better for longer. We provide trusted information and raise awareness to promote the best possible care and support. We play an authoritative role in shaping government policies to empower the MND community. Every research project financed by MND Australia has been scrutinised and endorsed by our committee of experts to ensure that our supporters’ donations fund only the best research.

MND is known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in many parts of the world.

We believe researchers will find a cure and one day the world will be free from MND.
