In 2014, a social networking group was formed on the Wechat social network platform to promote primarily communication amongst Australian Doctors from China. Since then the membership has increased significantly with doctors joining from all over Australia. With over 300 active members the group became an effective and friendly platform for GPs and specialists alike to exchange information, seek expertise and obtain fresh ideas and help for their patient's care.
With the growth and maturity of the Group, in 2018 the Group transitioned into the Australian Chinese Doctors Association (ACDA), an organization of Chinese medical practitioners who promote and advance the quality of health care in the community. ACDA is a not for profit organization and is run by volunteer committee members.
