MDA – “The Facts”
Since inception, the MDA has developed many programs and services in support of the National MD Community.
Today, we provide support and access to our wide raft of programs and services to people across the nation in each State and Territory. The extent of this service provision is without peer.
MDA have hosted “Campers” from overseas who have attended National CampMDA. And access to The Home of MDA has been made from every quarter of the planet.
In turn, the MDA is supported by community and business partnerships that help sustain the provision of these programs and services to the MD community.
