Genetic Alliance is the world’s leading nonprofit health advocacy organization committed to transforming health through genetics and promoting an environment of openness centered on the health of individuals, families, and communities.
Genetic Alliance’s network includes more than 1,200 disease-specific advocacy organizations, as well as thousands of universities, private companies, government agencies, and public policy organizations. The network is a dynamic and growing open space for shared resources, creative tools, and innovative programs.
Since 1986, Genetic Alliance has defined the intersection of health and genetics. Originally founded as an alliance for support groups, our work has evolved along with the growing health advocacy movement and the rapid advancement of genetic technology. While our roots are in genetics, we recognize that meaningful solutions that improves health must be multidisciplinary. To that end, we apply solutions in health and disease, practice and prevention, and on the local and global level. Through our broad and diverse partnerships, we have created a dynamic network that serves as an open space for sharing valuable resources, creative tools, and innovative programs.
Genetic Alliance transforms health by engaging individuals, families, and communities.
