EURORDIS is a patient-driven alliance of Patient Organisations (POs) and individuals active in the field of rare diseases (RD). It represents the voice of an estimated 29 million citizens in the EU.

EURORDIS mission is to build a strong pan-European community of POs and People Living With RD (PLWRD), to be their voice at the European level and to fight against the impact of RD on their lives.

To this end, EURORDIS undertakes activities on behalf of its members, notably in favour of:

• Empowering RD patient groups
• Advocating RD as a public health priority
• Raising public awareness on RD (national and international levels)
• Improving access to information, treatment, care and support for PLWRD, including support to families
• Improving quality of life
• Encouraging good practices in relation to these issues
• Promoting scientific and clinical research on RD
• Developing treatments and drugs for people with RD

EURORDIS plays a pivotal role in the definition and implementation of the EU strategy on RD (EC Communication, Dec.2008 and Council Recommendations, June 2009).

Our mission is to improve the lives of porphyria patients by improving the diagnosis and treatment of these rare conditions. EPNET has been funded by the EU Commission (DG SANCO, PHEA programme). The objective is to provide an effective network of specialist porphyria centres in each country. EPNET contains 28 EU specialist centres that work together to develop an up-to-date approach to the management of patients and families with porphyria that conforms to uniform standards. EPNET focuses on: provision of information to patients (in their own languages) and healthcare professionals (HCPs); collection of information on safety of drugs; use of external quality assessment to develop quality standards for diagnosis and clinical advice; a web-based registry to collect data about the porphyrias to inform clinical practice and healthcare planning. Progress is communicated to partners through regular meetings and reports. Information on the porphyrias and drug selection is made available to patients, public health authorities and HCP’s at www.porphyria-europe.org; www.drugs-porphyria.org.
