Our Activities

Our mission: Bringing knowledge, hope and help to individuals and families around the world affected by AMD

We are the only international organization dedicated exclusively to macular disease. With 70 members in 26 countries,we are comprised of prominent leaders in ophthalmology, vision rehabilitation, research and patient and senior’s advocacy.


Our Key Strategies:

  • Launch aggressive awareness campaigns focused on at-risk populations and caregivers to promote the sight-saving importance of early detection and regular eye exams for those 50 and older.
  • Demand that governments recognize and support macular disease as a health priority to ensure patient access to treatments and low vision rehabilitation.
  • Provide help and hope to patients around the world.

Our Achievements

With our broad global reach, and members across wide-ranging political, cultural and geographic spectrums, we play a major role in increasing awareness of macular degeneration around the world and influencing governments to recognize AMD as a health priority.

WE ADVOCATE FOR PATIENTS

  • AMD Alliance mobilizes members around the world to help influence outcomes in many countries and regions to ensure patients have affordable access to the best treatments.
  • The Alliance developed an in-depth Advocacy Tutorial to help member organizations launch their own successful campaigns.(LINK Advocacy Tutorial)

WE HELP PATIENTS GET THE CARE THEY DESERVE

  • AMD Alliance Members developed the Macular Disease Patient Charter, outlining the rights of people with macular disease.
  • AMDAI encourages governments to embrace the charter and issue national declarations of support.
  • Broad awareness campaigns are underway to get the word out about the charter to encourage patients to seek the care they deserve.

WE KEEP PATIENTS INFORMED

Through our global public education network, website in four languages (www.amdalliance,org), brochures, newsletters and breaking news alerts, we are helping patients get the information and support they need.

WE ENLIST PROMINENT SCIENTIFIC ADVISORS

The Alliance has an impressive Scientific Advisory Panel comprised of independent, expert advisors to provide advice and information on AMD research, preventions, and treatments.

WE SUPPORT RESEARCH

We conduct landmark social research projects and widely distribute this research to governments and members.

WE BUILD CONSENSUS

AMDAI facilitates a global exchange of information between world renowned leaders in ophthalmology, vision rehabilitation, research, and patient and senior’s advocacy groups.



OUR GOALS

GAIN YOUR SUPPORT

Millions around the world are losing their vision to macular disease and we expect that number to triple in the future. When you get involved with the Alliance, or support one of our member organizations, you are making a real difference for those living with AMD.

RAMP UP PRESSURE ON GOVERNMENTS

We need to ensure that governments, regulators, and policy makers around the world recognize AMD as a health priority and that patients have affordable access to the best treatments and low vision rehabilitation.

INCREASE RESEARCH

With recent treatments now available for AMD and more on the horizon, it is an exciting time in macular disease research. However, there is no cure for AMD and the effects of the disease can be devastating. We need to ensure that promising research continues so that one day, no one will face a world of darkness.

FOSTER GLOBAL ALLIANCES

Our members are working everyday on behalf of patients: advocating for access to care, treatments and low vision rehabilitation; funding research for new treatments; and providing much-needed support for living with the disease. The AMD Alliance International will continue to lead the global AMD movement to improve the quality of life of people affected by macular disease and to facilitate international cooperation between concerned stakeholders to provide hope, help, and ultimately a cure to patients.

Our AMD Alliance Global Team

AMD Alliance International is governed by an international board of directors, steered by an executive committee, and guided by a panel of world-renowned scientific experts.
