Advocacy

Systemic advocacy

As peak body, the Genetic and Rare Disease Network (GaRDN) advocates to influence outcomes in public policy & resource allocation within Government as well as the policies & practices of service agencies to ensure optimal results for people living with a genetic and/or rare condition.

Our systemic advocacy work includes media, participation in committees, submissions to government policy review processes and direct representation to politicians and other key decision-makers.

Individual advocacy can directly assist parents/families to resolve issues of specific relevance to their family. For more information on individual advocacy download: Resource Guide for Families (PDF)
