Patients' Association

associationThe improvement in the health of the population as a whole is an issue which concerns us all, from the Health Authorities with appropriate policies, to the individual who has the greatest  responsibility for his/her own health, doing everything possible to lead a healthy lifestyle and receiving  attention when it is necessary  from the healthcare system.

Patients' Associations, as social agents which are created for the purpose of giving support to persons affected by different pathologies, play a very important role in raising awareness in patients themselves about their health condition and of society’s need of being involved. In addition, a group of people, with a common purpose, has far more influence to drive forward advances in the search for effective solutions, both therapeutic and social.

The Andalusian Network for the design and translation of Advanced Therapies shares a common framework  with Patients' Associations, as most of the research it promotes is focused  on  serious, rare pathologies for which there are few therapeutic options. In cases of this kind, Patients' Associations have an important role in vital tasks of spreading, demanding and supporting.

If you are involved in the management of any such Patients' Associations and are interested in establishing collaboration with the Coordination Unit of the Andalusian Network for the design and translation of Advanced Therapies, please contact us at: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Andalusian Network for the design and translation of Advanced Therapies

We promote advanced therapy research because we are convinced of its potential in the ongoing search for new therapies for diseases where there is still no effective treatment or where improvements can be made in the quality of life of patients suffering from these diseases. In this regard, we try to collaborate with all institutions involved in this field. Our hallmark is the search for synergies among the academic world, research institutions, health centres, patients’ associations, biotechnological SMEs and the pharmaceutical industry. In this search, we have no geographic bounds, collaborating with numerous international institutions and different international universities.

The development of new therapies for chronic pathologies without an existing effective treatment will result in a definite benefit for us all and we can all play our part. Any donation you may make will not only help to give hope to thousands of patients but will also bring significant personal tax advantages.
