Genetic Alliance Australia (GA-AU) is an umbrella group, facilitating support for those affected directly or indirectly by rare diseases (80% of which are genetic in origin) throughout Australasia. We offer peer support, education and information through our seminars, annual information days and resource booklets. GA-AU has a database of over 950 predominantly rare genetic conditions and a contact register representing approximately 2500 people. GA-AU works in partnership with sister organisations around the world.
