ABOUT US


The Parkinson’s Disease & Movement Disorder Society (PDMDS) is the leading voice for Parkinson’s in India. Through our activities, we strive to raise awareness about Parkinson’s and dispel the associated myths, provide affordable and accessible information and therapy to all stakeholders and promote the rights of People with Parkinson’s (PwPs) in India.
We started with one community-based support centre in a suburb of Mumbai in 2005, and have steadily grown to more than 60 Parkinson’s Support centres in 13 states all over India. This Mumbai paradigm has been replicated in other parts of the country through the ‘PDMDS MULTIDISIPLINARY MODEL OF CARE’ which has been internationally recognized as one of the best models of care for developing countries.

The PDMDS Story


The PDMDS is an all India charity organization founded in 2001 and registered under the Societies Registration Act of 1860. The organization was founded by internationally renowned neurologist Dr Bhim Sen Singhal, whose vision was to set up a free-of-cost multidisciplinary support service for PwPs and their caregivers with the aim of improving their Quality of Life.

Most recently in India, Parkinson’s disease has been included in the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, 2016 by the Indian Parliament. Dr Maria Barretto, the CEO of the PDMDS, was nominated on the sub-committee for Neurological Disorders by the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment to make recommendations for Parkinson’s disease.

“The task may be daunting, but I am confident that with your unflinching support, we will be able to fulfill our mission.”
