The Cyprus Parkinson’s Disease Association was founded in 2000 with the aim to provide useful and practical information for individuals and their families that are confronted with the Parkinson’s Disease (also known as Parkinson disease or PD) in Cyprus.

The disease is named after the English doctor James Parkinson, who published the first detailed description in 1817.

The tulip has been elected by many Parkinson’s disease organisations and groups as their symbol.
On 11 April 2005, the Red Tulip (named the Dr. James Parkinson Tulip) was launched as the Worldwide Symbol of Parkinson’s Disease at the 9th World PD Day Conference in Luxembourg.
