The main goal of Patient Innovation is to reach patients and to be able to help them change their lives. We believe that the know-how and the invaluable bond of trust that Patient Associations and Groups develop with their patients is one of the best ways to achieve that purpose. These are the Patient Associations and Groups that have agreed to work hard with us in providing a valuable tool to their patients.
