  • Promote international understanding of Parkinson’s disease and link different communities facing its challenges
  • Provide an interface for all those professionally or personally concerned with the disease to eschange information on advances in health care


The Magazine will be published four times a year, and will be available free to EPDA members. It will also be available for a nominal fee to other interested parties.
