Dystonia Network of Australia Inc. (DNA) is the National Peak Organisation for all types of Dystonia in Australia. DNA was founded in 2014 and is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission. We aim to provide appropriate, researched information for adults and children with dystonia, their carers and interested health providers. We also aim to increase community awareness of dystonia and to fund seminars and assist with research into the condition.

We are run by a volunteer committee and have no paid staff. We also have a medical and multidisciplinary advisory board.

In 2023 DNA adopted the NSW Fair Trading model constitution. A link to it can be found here.
