BUILDING AN EFFECTIVE PH ASSOCIATION
Associations make a world of difference
For every person who is diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension, there is a journey. Whether you are a patient, a family member, or a medical professional committed to keeping your PH patients alive, you are not alone. There is help for you.
Providing this support is the goal of more than fifty formal PH associations worldwide – and could be yours as well! Associations raise awareness of PH among the public and medical communities, create support groups and events, advocate for rights and health-care coverage, promote research, and offer a friendly hand to every member of our global PH community – whether near or far.
YOU can build an effective PH association
The challenges and opportunities that associations face are unique to each country, but remember that the road has been paved. There is a whole network of association leaders ready to offer suggestions and stories about “lessons learned.” Whether you’re hoping to start your country’s first association or to enhance one you’re already involved with, these stories will help you get started.
