Patient organisations

Patient organisations are non-profit organisations which are patient-focused where patients and/or carers represent a majority of members in governing bodies (European Medicines Agency, 2014). Herewith, we provide a list of national and European patient organisations that work in the disease area that is covered by ERN-RND.

Study Groups & networks

The listed study groups and disease networks are external networks and groups, which are leaders in the field of research for these disease groups. ERN-RND’s work is based on and complimentary to the work being done by these networks.
