The mission of the Lupus Association is to work towards a world without lupus and associated connective tissue diseases through support, education and research into a cure.

The Lupus Association has over 4000 members Australia-wide and provides services to those newly diagnosed as well as those who have been living with lupus for some time.

Please explore our website and discover as much as you can about this life-changing disease. For further information you can contact the Association directly to speak with someone who can guide you to a more detailed understanding.  With your help and continued financial support we can assist researches and practitioners with developing better and more effective diagnosis and treatment programs for lupus patients, as well as support research efforts to find a cure for lupus.

The Lupus Association provides this website to allow users to gather information. The opinions and statements expressed by the authors or contributors to this website do not necessarily reflect the opinions or positions of the Lupus Association.
