Mission
EFA is aiming to be a powerful European network of allergy, asthma and COPD patients’ organisations that:
1. Advocates at the EU level for the needs of patients of these disease areas,
2. Values all members equally,
3. Implements best practices
4. Creates patient-driven projects
5. Cooperates with healthcare professionals, scientists and other stakeholders and NGOs in order to achieve its goals, implement values and have holistic approaches to solving health & care problems which directly affect patients with allergy, asthma and COPD.
Vision
EFA is dedicated to making Europe a place where people with allergies, asthma and COPD
- have the right to the best quality of care and safe environment,
- live uncompromised lives and
- are actively involved in all decisions influencing their health.
The organisation’s activities either integrate all elements of EFA’s vision or specifically focus upon one element individually so as to strengthen the overall position of allergy, asthma and COPD patients in Europe as EFA seeks long-term and meaningful solutions to the everyday issues of the patients it represents.
The core values of the EFA organisation are (1) patient perspective; (2) involvement; (3) sharing knowledge and experience; (4) partnership and cooperation; and (5) visibility and presence. The values are guiding principles for the organisation in all it`s activities. All of EFA’s activities and planning purposefully integrate these central values to demonstrate consistency in EFA’s work plans. As values shared by all its members, they foster trust between the national organisations and EFA, which designates the work performed in Brussels as overlapping with their own interests. These values also demonstrate EFA’s legitimacy to other organisations and actors working at the European level, which signals EFA’s mission and vision are exclusively driven by its membership and the patients whom they represent.
The mission and vision are visibly communicated at EFA website, and EFA publications.

The objective of the FLURESP consortium is to redefine main human pandemic scenarios at the European level, describe and cluster possible response strategies and assess these response strategies in the frame of multi-criteria and cost-effectiveness analyses, taking into account lessons from the 2009 pandemic situation in Europe. Human pandemic scenarios and main related responses have never been assessed and ranked using both multi-criteria and cost-effectiveness approaches. It appears urgent to develop a strategy relying on assessment of lessons learnt with respect to improving intersectorial collaboration and cross-border coordination in responding to health emergencies. The integrated approach of Decision Making proposed by the FLURESP consortium would constitute a premiere at the European and global level, which would support member states to select the most appropriate and efficient public response to various scenarios of human pandemic.
