EFA: 2013 Annual Report

2013 was a milestone for the European Federation of Allergy and Airways Diseases Patients’ Association (EFA). On the policy side, EFA launched its own Manifesto for the 2014 European Parliament elections, aiming to bring more visibility to EFA’s asks and fields of activity.

EFA launched several projects including the publication ‘Minimum Standards of care for COPD patients in Europe´, a booklet on ‘Enabling Air Travel with Oxygen in Europe’ as well as being a partner in five innovative EU research projects advancing on knowledge and personalised care in allergy and respiratory diseases.

The annual training for EFA members on EU health related policy was once again a success and it demonstrated that EFA’s role in capacity building is vital to increase our collective impact. EFA welcomed a new member from Portugal and fostered relations with potential members in Croatia and Malta.

The complete 2013 EFA Annual Report is available here.
