Mission blog view
Our mission is to enable positive health outcomes, awareness and equality for multiple birth families through advocacy, education and community.
The grassroots purpose of the Australian Multiple Birth Association is to provide support from 'those who know'. By focusing on improving health outcomes for multiple birth families and by providing local, practical support, we stay aligned to our mission and can work to deliver the impact we strive for.
To be the leading resource for multiple birth families in Australia for social support, literature and educational information.
The Australian Multiple Birth Association is classified by the Australian Not for Profit and Charities Commission (ACNC) under Advancing Health and Health Promotion Charity subtypes. Programs and services offered by the Australian Multiple Birth Association are aligned with the purpose of these subtypes to ensure that our organisational activities will result in the outcomes we seek for our families.
Amongst plenty of positive experiences and the joys of raising multiples, the multiple birth community also face challenging realities such as poorer health outcomes for mothers and babies. Health is not just the absence of disease, but encompasses a holistic view of positive physical, mental and social well-being. As the only national charity supporting multiple birth families, it is the role of the Australian Multiple Birth Association to work towards a world where multiple birth families experience positive health outcomes, where the community around them are aware of the issues they face, and that multiples and their families are treated fairly without prejudice.

Our mission makes it clear where we must focus our attention to ensure the strongest impact.
AMBA illustrated work towards our new mission via an updated strategy that the Board of Directors presented at National Convention in 2018. It has been refined a bit since, as our collective insights as a board have broadened, individual experiences have influenced us and we have gained more insights into the reality of AMBA’s potential impact.
