    Because breathing is taken for granted, we work for better recognition of chronic respiratory diseases

Europe is a highly fragmented continent. The European Union covers many European countries but there are big parts that do not report to the EU institutions. It is the case of Norway, in northern Europe, Russia and Ukraine, in Eastern Europe Switzerland, in the central Europe, and the Balkan countries in the south.

Even within the European Union there are socio-economic, cultural and historical elements that hinder cooperation and delay negotiations to adopt and implement decisions.

At EFA, we work to achieve the highest healthcare standards for all European citizens

We thrive to promote early diagnosis and timely prevention programmes to avoid severe degrees of preventable diseases.

We feed and maintain a network of patient experts around Europe to bridge political gap and lead on policy change for asthma, allergy and COPD. Our members’ involvement and feedback is as important as our activities in the public arena. We use all channels to keep them updated via social networks: Twitter handle and Facebook page.

We mobilise our partners, from healthcare professionals to civil society organisations working on other areas to ensure they support our calls and join our cause. We keep them informed through our Press releases, Calls to Action and monthly newsletter.
