The aHUS alliance was formed on 16 February 2013* .

It was created by some national patient organisations which had sprung up around the world to advocate for all affected by aHUS.

Representatives from aHUS patient organisations from Belgium, France, Italy, Russia, Spain and UK met and agreed that there were some things that could be done better if we worked together. It was agreed that an aHUS alliance be formed and to seek other aHUS patient organisations to join in.

The aHUS alliance was launched on Rare Disease Day 2013.

Since 2013 another eight countries have affiliated to the alliance from Australia, Canada, Germany Japan , India, Mexico, The Netherlands and USA. Global Action created aHUS Rest of World in 2017 for emerging aHUS advocates in other countries to be a part of.

In keeping with the reason for which it was created, the aHUS alliance’s VISION was formally agreed at the third meeting of the aHUS alliance in London in June 2015

It is simply that:


The alliance also agreed its  MISSION STATEMENT  which is:

The aHUS alliance, through the collaboration of its affiliates

will promote global awareness of aHUS,

will work with international aHUS researchers and,

by supporting newly emerging national aHUS patient groups,

will bring relief and support to those affected by aHUS to save, and improve the quality of, more lives.
