European Patients Forum (EPF)
The European Patients’ Forum (EPF) is an umbrella organisation whose members are patients’ groups who either represent chronic disease groups or national coalitions of patients at a European level. The EPF has got the vision that all patients with chronic and/or lifelong conditions living in the EU have access to high quality, patient-centred equitable health and social care. Patients shall become equal citizens in the EU and so the EPF supports programmes and policies driven by the patients’ community. Furthermore, best practice exchanges between patient organisations are coordinated at a national as well as at a European level.
