In the beginning of February, all of the Spanish Huntington’s disease associations were gathered in Madrid for the first time.
Spain is one of most populated countries in Europe and have 12 Huntington’s disease associations. The meeting was an important first step in establishing collaboration between them and start working together.
During the meeting, the different associations got to know each other and come up with new ideas on how to improve the situation for people impacted by Huntington’s disease in Spain.
– We have gotten to know each other and what we do, Ruth Blanco Peralta, President of ACHE – Asociación Corea de Huntington Española, told the European Huntington Association.
– We realize that we are working for the same objectives and can join forces to improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
According to Ruth, it is only through collaboration that we can really improve the situation for Huntington’s disease families:
– We have to work together on the National level, European level and Global level.
