MPN Advocates Network
The global MPN Advocates Network (MPNAN) was founded by patients from the Netherlands, Spain and the UK. The MPN Advocates Network’s immediate goal is to increase the international scope of the organisation by contacting MPN patient groups in other countries and inviting them to become part of the network. The initial focus will be groups in Europe, but the intention is to be a worldwide organisation.
The MPN Advocates Network hosts an annual “MPN Horizons”, the international conference for MPN patient advocacy leaders. We aim at educating patient advocates, building patient groups’ capacity, implementing advocacy initiatives with a real impact in the countries and finally enforcing cooperation in the global “MPN Advocates Network”.
