Atypical HUS Fact Sheets – Sept 2018 Editions

Information and medical knowledge can change rapidly, which can be problematic for those looking for the latest 2018-2019 facts and key research about the rare disease atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (atypical HUS or aHUS).
The aHUS Alliance, an international umbrella group of atypical HUS patient organizations and rare disease advocates, annually has created a robust and varied set of images and resources for aHUS Awareness campaigns each 24 September. (On Twitter:  @aHUS24Sept and @aHUSallianceAct )
aHUS Alliance Fact Sheets are offered in 2 formats (see full description & links below):
1)  In Brief: aHUS Fact Sheet (2018-2019 – One page version to print and share, as well as

Note:  These aHUS Alliance fact sheets have been released Sept 2018 to mark aHUS Awareness Day.  They will remain as a key resource through the year, until 24 Sept 2019 resources launch.
About the aHUS Awareness Day campaign
Founded by the aHUS Alliance in 2015 and recognized each 24 September, aHUS Awareness Day was designed to raise visibility of rare disease healthcare for aHUS patients, to highlight atypical HUS research, shed light on treatment issues facing physicians and patients, and provide insight into the needs of people living with atypical HUS.  Our global aHUS Awareness Day campaign each year includes disease-specific resources and updated, objective information for use in all nations and by all stakeholders.
