Malta Parkinson's Disease Association



How It All Started


MPDA was founded in 2008 by Mrs Anne Downing, who ran as president of the MPDA from 2008 till 2012. It was set up as the first association in Malta to provide support for persons living with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) along with their families.


MPDA is a registered charity (VO/0061) run by a committee of volunteers. It is monitored by the Commissioner for Voluntary Organisations.



Our Aims


Our main aims are to give advice and information regarding PD to persons with Parkinson’s as well as to their carers; to promote and raise awareness of the difficulties faced by persons with Parkinson’s along with their carers; to raise funds to support us in our aims and to contribute towards research into finding a cure for this disease. 



The Committee


We are an enthusiastic group of individuals with one common aim: to improve the lives of people living with Parkinson’s in Malta and around the world. The association would not exist without the hard work of the committee and we take pride in our work. We are volunteers and we do our work in our own spare time.

The MPDA holds an Annual General Meeting early each year. It is a time when we deliver information about the past year and proposed plans for the following one. We also hold general elections for committee members during the AGM. Click below for a copy of our statute to know more about the running of the MPDA.
