MISSION: The mission of The Global Foundation for Peroxisomal Disorders is to help children and families faced with a diagnosis of a Peroxisomal Biogenesis Disorder (in the Zellweger Spectrum of Disorders) and to assist family members and professionals through educational programs, research, and support services.

The Global Foundation for Peroxisomal Disorders is a 501(c)(3) public charity committed to funding research to develop a greater understanding of Peroxisomal Biogenesis Disorders (PBDs).  Additionally, GFPD organizes family support and informational conferences, connects families through an online support group, and provides an equipment exchange program.

GFPD also shares objective and credible information to families and caregivers of patients with PBDs and is a voice in the public arena for children affected by the disorders.

The Global Foundation for Peroxisomal Disorders is a resource for families who have received a diagnosis of Zellweger Syndrome, Neonatal Adrenoleukodystrophy (NALD), Infantile Refsum Disease (IRD) and D-Bifunctional Protein Deficiency through connections to medical & scientific professionals and family support networks.
