Patients sharing their rare disease journey help bring new levels of understanding to researchers, industry, and the general public. Whether you’re living with atypical HUS or a member of the press, here’s a list of various aHUS information and resource links likely to provide a useful starting point for aHUS interviews, advocacy projects, or social media outreach – effectively an aHUS alliance Press Kit.
The aHUS Alliance, a global affiliation of patient organizations and aHUS advocates around the world, is dedicated to sharing information and resources that foster a better understanding of the challenges faced by those living with the ultra rare disease atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome.
