EPF is an umbrella organisation that works with patients’ groups in public health and health advocacy across Europe. Our members represent specific chronic disease groups at EU level or are national coalitions of patients.
EPF officially launched a major one-year campaign on Patient Empowerment on 20-21 May 2015 to promote understanding on patient empowerment.
EPF releases a monthly newsletter with the latest updates. If you wish to subscribe, please send an email with your contact details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We currently represent 67 patients' organisations and an estimated 150 million patients across the 28 Member States throughout Europe.
EPF is active in various health-related projects both as a leader or associate partner.
EPF is active in a number of policy areas, monitoring new developments to ensure that the patients' perspective is proactively incorporated into the EU policy agenda.
The Patient Access Partnership is a patient-led network that aims to tackle the issue of health inequalities from the perspective of patients.
EPF places a strong emphasis on forging alliances and good working relations with European organisations with which we have a common agenda.
