The Lyme Disease Association of Australia (LDAA) commenced operations in November 2009. Since that time, we have evolved into a powerful organisation with the assistance of many volunteers who are passionate about awareness and education, and ultimately eradication of the illness, which can be debilitating, life changing, and in some unfortunate cases deadly.
Without our volunteers (past and present), the LDAA would not be what it is today and to you all we say a very big thank you.
In November 2017, the LDAA formed a board, to further enhance our position as the peak body in Australia.
The LDAA recognises the critical and overdue need for accurate information about all aspects of Lyme disease in Australia. Well researched prevention programs, clinical studies, patient support, and appropriate diagnostic and treatment guidelines that address the unique Australian situation will play a key role in changing the current uncertainties and confusion that surround Lyme disease in Australia. Research approaches that are far more aware and encompassing of past barriers and the complexities of this illness are critical to the conduct of effective Lyme disease research. To that end, we will continue in our endeavours.
If you, or anyone you know, would like to become involved in the LDAA at any level, please contact us.
