About the Alpha-1 Association
The AAA was established following recognition of the absence of a central body of information and contacts for those affected by and working with Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (commonly abbreviated to A1AD or AATD). A1AD is a genetically inherited medical condition which can affect the liver and lungs. The AAA has produced a booklet which contains more detail about the condition. See our Links section also.
An online discussion group has been established since 9 May 2002. The group is open to Australian or New Zealand residents who are affected by or have an interest in A1AD.
We are grateful to our past and present supporters. Please take the time to visit their web sites by clicking on the logos below.
If you or your organisation wants to support or sponsor the AAA, either generally or for a specific project, we'd love to hear from you. Specific projects or expenses for which we are currently looking for assistance with include:
- Accounting service
- Audit service
- Insurance expense
- Printing business card
