The aHUS Alliance, an umbrella group of 15 nations with aHUS patient groups, launched a worldwide survey of aHUS patients and caregivers to mark Rare Disease Day 2016 (29 February). Members within the aHUS Alliance think meaningful information from the 2016 aHUS global poll can provide researchers, clinical trial investigators and industry a better perspective of how to reach physicians and their patients. The survey also was designed to help patient groups better understand the needs of their members and to explore the differences in care, diagnosis and treatment access around the world.
aHUS Canada is encouraging patients and caregivers to participate in the 2016 survey. The more patients that are participating in the 2016 aHUS global poll, the better understanding there will be about the challenges of aHUS such as barriers to diagnosis, access to treatment, availability of genetic testing, need for increased research efforts, participation in registries and clinical trials, and better/more information about aHUS.
Please take a few minutes to fill out the 2016 aHUS global survey.
A similar effort was conducted in partnership with Rare Connect in 2014.
