The European Commission has established “European Reference Networks” (ERNs). The ERN for rare pulmonary diseases is ERN-LUNG. This is a Network of European Healthcare Providers (HCPs) dedicated to ensuring and promoting excellence in care and research to the benefit of patients. ERN-LUNG’s vision is to be a European knowledge hub for rare respiratory diseases and to decrease morbidity and mortality from rare respiratory diseases in people of all ages. ERN-LUNG is a non-profit, international, professional, patient-centric and scientific network and it is committed Europe-wide and globally to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of rare respiratory diseases through patient care and advocacy, education, and research.
ERN-LUNG is currently made up of 60 centres from 12 countries, focused on rare respiratory diseases and is grouped in 9 Core Networks representing the diversity of diseases and conditions affecting the respiratory system. The current Core Networks (sub-thematic areas) are: Interstitial lung diseases (ILD), Cystic fibrosis (CF), Pulmonary hypertension (PH), Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD), Non-CF bronchiectasis (NCFBE), Alpha1-antitrypsin deficiency (AATD), Mesothelioma (MSTO), Chronic lung allograft dysfunction (CLAD), and Other rare lung diseases.
ERN-LUNG Year 2 programme will now focus on using the established structures to offer services to patients and medical professionals throughout the European Union. ERN-LUNG will start using and improving the CPMS to the best of patients and colleagues. In accordance with the five-year plan the Network will add more supporting partners, associated partners and – if the next call should be published during this year – to add more members to the network as to cover all Member States of the EU. The network will continue to seek funding possibilities to improve the quality of care offered in the area of rare diseases of the respiratory system.
