International Neuromuscular Disease Websites
Living in the U.S.A., most of what I know about organizations, associations, and services for those with neuromuscular disease has been focused in the U.S.A. I realize, of course, that people all over the world suffer from neuromuscular disease, and need to find appropriate and effective information, support, and service.
The following lists some of the websites to organizations and summaries of the organizations that serve the worldwide neuromuscular diseases community. I do not have experience with most of these organizations, however, so make sure to check any resource that you plan to use to be sure that it is reputable. If you have experience with any of the organizations below or with other organizations relevant to the neuromuscular diseases community, please feel free to post information in the forum.
These websites were accessed on March 8, 2012. This list is by no means exhaustive. I hope that this list will help you to locate appropriate services where you live.
