Australian Pituitary Foundation

Australian Pituitary Foundation Ltd (“APF”) is a not-for-profit organisatIon founded in Sydney in 1994 by pituitary patients and family members, with the endorsement of Australian endocrinologists, neurosurgeons, radiation therapists and endocrine nurses, who saw the need to support people who have rare conditions of the pituitary gland. The Foundation is now a national organisation with the national office based in Queensland supported by branches in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. APF is run from home offices by a dedicated committee who are volunteers. Our organisation is funded by pharmaceutical company sponsorship, donations and membership fees, and we do not receive government funding. The Foundation supports and assists adults, children and families who have been affected by pituitary conditions and tumours. Pituitary disease is rare, therefore there is a strong need within the community for awareness and education. The Australian Pituitary Foundation is involved in a number of activities including: • Supporting healthcare professionals • Networking with endocrine support groups • Lobbying government • Providing a support network • Arranging education & social activities • Promoting Pituitary awareness
