EFA: Baltic Alignment Meeting

On 15 February the European Federation of Allergy and Airways Diseases Patients Associations (EFA) organised an alignment meeting in Vilnius with patient associations representing people with asthma, allergy and COPD in Latvia and Lithuania.

The objective of the meeting was to renew the relationships between EFA and its member organisations in Lithuania as well as to establish a relationship with the organisation in Latvia.

The meeting was attended by EFA staff and Board Members as well as representatives from Lithuanian Council of Asthma Clubs, Association of Asthma Patient Clubs, Association of Allergic Children Clubs and Latvian Asthma and Allergy Association.

All of the participants had time to present the activities and structure of their organisations and to share their experience with representing patients in their country.

EFA hopes that this meeting will help to strengthen its position as a main European reference point for people with allergy, asthma and COPD.
