We are delighted to announce that the Alliance for Pulmonary Hypertension (AfPH) has become a member of the European Lung Foundation (ELF) Patient Organisation Network, which includes more than 200 respiratory organisations across Europe and beyond, working together with people living with over 40 different lung conditions, including pulmonary hypertension.
The European Lung Foundation (ELF) is renowned for its dedication to advancing lung health across Europe and beyond. By connecting and collaborating with various patient organizations, ELF strives to create a unified voice that promotes better understanding, treatment, and care for individuals affected by respiratory conditions.
The addition of AfPH to the ELF Patient Organisation Network strengthens the collective impact of this alliance. AfPH’s expertise in addressing the unique challenges faced by pulmonary hypertension patients brings valuable insights to the network. Together, these organizations can enhance the dissemination of information, foster cooperation, and drive positive change in the field of pulmonary hypertension.
By joining forces with ELF, AfPH gains access to a broader network of healthcare professionals, researchers, and patient advocacy groups. This collaborative platform provides opportunities for knowledge sharing, collaborative projects, and the exchange of best practices, ultimately benefiting the entire pulmonary hypertension community.
Moreover, the affiliation with ELF elevates the visibility and reach of AfPH’s initiatives. Through enhanced exposure and increased resources, AfPH can expand its efforts to support patients, caregivers, and healthcare providers. The network also facilitates the development of educational programs, awareness campaigns, and policy advocacy, all of which contribute to improving the lives of those affected by pulmonary hypertension.
