Youth Parliament

EPAllergyAsthma

The European Allergy and Asthma Youth Parliament brings together young allergy and asthma patients between 16-26 years from all around Europe. It is a forum to share experiences and knowledge, to raise awareness for the pressing issues for young patients, and to inform European policymakers on how their work can support young people living with asthma and allergies.

The next generation of European patient leaders

Backed by the European Allergy and Asthma patient community and the European Parliament Interest Group on Allergy and Asthma, the Youth Parliament is an opportunity for young patients to bring the youth perspective to the European level, to get familiar with EU policymaking, and to join the network of the next generation of European allergy and asthma patient leaders.

Our Mission

Our mission is to advocate change for all young allergy and asthma patients by informing European policymakers on our needs and priorities. As patient ambassadors, we propose recommendations from a youth perspective on how to improve young patients’ abilities to manage their disease and increase their Quality of Life.

  • Advocate change for all young allergy and asthma patients;
  • Inform European policymakers on our needs and priorities;
  • Propose recommendations from a youth perspective;
  • Improve young patients’ abilities to manage their disease.

What we do

The members of the Youth Parliament come together in regular virtual meetings. We use EFA’s forum to develop and express opinions on health issues that affect our daily lives. Being a diverse network of young patients, we are equipped with a variety of personal experiences and backgrounds, yet we are also developing our skills as patient ambassadors.

Currently, we are preparing recommendations on how to improve the daily lives of young allergy and asthma patients in Europe. Our proposals will be presented to Members of the European Parliament in the last quarter of 2020.
