Macular Disease Foundation Australia’s vision is to reduce the incidence and impact of macular disease in Australia. Macular disease encompasses macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, retinal vein occlusion and a range of other diseases of the macula.
The Foundation is the voice of the macular disease community, representing its best interests.
The strategic goals underpinning all of the Foundation’s work, are to develop a sound knowledge base, to influence public policy, establish and maintain strong relationships and partnerships, and build healthy communities.
These goals are achieved through education and awareness programs, funding and supporting research, representing the community and providing vital client support.
Macular Disease Foundation Australia is driven to achieve its vision by a dedicated Board, Committees, State Chairs, staff and volunteers, all of whom share common values.
These values are:
Respect for the dignity of the person
Concern, support and understanding
Trustworthiness, honesty, loyalty, reliability and the highest standard of ethical behaviour in an environment of total quality care
Focus on effective, appropriate, high-quality care in the advocacy for, and administration of, services for people with macular disease, their family and carers.
