European Parkinson's Disease Association

Who we are

The European Parkinson’s Disease Association (EPDA) is the only European Parkinson's umbrella organisation. We have been championing and working with the global Parkinson’s community for nearly 30 years. Since the EPDA was founded, back in 1992, our focus has always been 100% on collaboration and building unity across Europe and the world. While national organisations work on national agendas in their own countries, we strive to unite the international Parkinson’s community to work together to achieve common goals and to pursue the EPDA vision: to enable all people with Parkinson's to live a full life, while supporting the search for a cure.

Today, as the leading voice for Parkinson’s in Europe, we provide information and resources to all Parkinson’s stakeholders, raise awareness of the disease’s complexities and impact, and advocate for concrete policy change that benefits the Parkinson’s community.

More specifically:

  • We engage and connect with the Parkinson’s community across Europe and the globe to champion collaborations and partnerships, help develop solutions to unmet needs, and raise awareness of the impact of the disease with decision makers.
  • Through our online library – the biggest in Europe – we provide up-to-date information, research and resources for Parkinson’s stakeholders to educate, advise and share good practices.
  • We represent our members: national Parkinson's associations that collectively have more than 120,000 individual members in nearly 30 countries across Europe, and that work hard to advocate for the rights and needs of more than 1.2 million people with Parkinson’s, their families and carers.
  • We provide an authoritative voice on the impact of Parkinson’s across Europe and advocate for policy change that benefits the European Parkinson’s community.

Please note: when donating to the EPDA, you will need to provide us with some of your personal details. Be assured that the information you provide will be stored within EPDA-controlled databases, and that it will not be shared with any third parties.
