The Muscular Dystrophy Association of New Zealand Inc. (MDANZ) is a member-led organisation established by New Zealanders with lived experience of neuromuscular conditions.

We began in the late 1950’s as a support group for families affected by muscular dystrophy. Since then, we have broadened our scope to include many other neuromuscular conditions and have become a leading source of information and support to our community.
