EUROPEAN PATIENTS FORUM
Founded in 2003, EPF is an umbrella patient organisation that works with patients’ groups in public health and health advocacy across Europe. EPF membership currently includes 75 patient organisations, and brings on board both disease specific European Platforms and national coalitions of patient organisations.
With over 16 years of work in the EU arena, EPF has a strong track record of successfully managing and completing complex EU-funded projects. Through consultations with a diverse membership across Europe, EPF gathers patients’ views and channels their voice to inform decision making in public health, health-related research and in the definition of innovative patterns for patient involvement. Within the European Patient Community, EPF leads debates on access to care, social dimension and non- discrimination as well as on Digital Health an Health Data.
