Useful links

The International Alliance of ALS/MND Associations has created this section to assist people interested in ALS/MND to pursue information about the disease, research, and supporting organisations. Links to web sites below are monitored and checked on a regular basis. Please advise the Alliance Coordinator at if any link is inoperable. The Alliance wishes to thank all those people who have collected links regarding ALS/MND and from whom we have borrowed freely in the interests of people living with ALS/MND.

The Alliance has not evaluated the information contained on sites mentioned below. In some cases, the Alliance has not checked that the links are currently operable. The sites have been included in this page because people with the disease, organisations, and researchers have recommended that they be included. The Alliance takes no responsibility for the information provided in web sites accessed from this page. Please see our standard disclaimer.

If you wish to add sites to this page, please send the web page address with a short description of the site to the Alliance Coordinator at We ask that all links are ALS/MND specific, and that each link is suggested or approved by an Alliance member association.

Please note: You may access the Alliance’s directory of ALS/MND associations here.

ALS/MND Research

The International Alliance recognises that people living with ALS/MND, friends, family, and healthcare professionals are regularly seeking information on research into ALS/MND.  We have collected from our members web sites that publish research reports and the outcomes of research into ALS/MND. The Alliance does not have the skills or resources to review research outcomes, to interpret research, or to distribute research papers.
