European Reference Networks are 3 years old

European Reference Networks (ERNs) were officially launched on 9 March 2017. This week, we celebrated their third anniversary!
We are proud of the work accomplished so far and look ahead with hope and optimism.  We are determined to continuing improving access to diagnosis and providing the best care for rare disease patients in Europe.

ERNs now bring together more than 900 highly specialised healthcare units from over 300 hospitals in 26 countries.

You can find more information about the European Reference Networks on the European Commission’s webpages.
