The mission of Amyloidosis Australia (AA) is to provide support for patients, families, and caregivers of those affected by amyloidosis; to provide information on amyloidosis to members of the public and medical professionals; and to support research on amyloidosis, in Australia and New Zealand. Amyloidosis is a condition in which abnormal protein deposits collect in various tissues, damaging the tissues and interfering with the functioning of organs. There is more than one type, and the disease is sometimes, but not always, hereditary.
