Muscular Dystrophy Foundation Australia (MDF) is the national peak body representing the interests of more than 40,000 Australians living with muscular dystrophy, and similar, rare conditions. Muscular Dystrophy (MD) is an ‘umbrella’ term that refers to a group of rare, complex, genetic conditions within a wider group of more than 75 conditions collectively referred to as neuromuscular conditions (NMCs). NMCs cause progressive deterioration of muscle strength and function and commonly result in profound disability..

MDF is committed to advocating on behalf of our community to influence improved health, social and economic outcomes. Our members are state and territory-based organisations which provide specialised support and services for their neuromuscular communities. This includes professional services as registered NDIS providers.
