EPOS

 

European Association of Patients 

Organizations of Sarcoidosis

and other Granulomatous Disorders

 

EPOS was founded as the international umbrella under which all national patients' organizations will be represented. Founded in the Spring of 2001 by SILA (United Kingdom), DSV (Germany), SSARV (Switzerland) and SBN (Netherlands), EPOS was joind by BBS (Belgium) in autumn 2006 and by ISARC (Ireland) in spring 2008.

EPOS has clearly marked targets and ideals. These include active participation in the foundation of (new) national organizations and also to stimulate international research and provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, experiences and expertise. The priority remains the provision of adequate information for patients and all others involved, in the broadest sense.

The suffering of the long-term sarcoid patient must be recognized as an unsatisfactory situation. Not only is the cause unknown but a medical cure remains undiscovered. In order to help these patients and those who aim to help them, the European Association of Patients Organizations and other Granulomatous Disorders (EPOS) was brought into being.

On the next pages, the members will present the general thoughts and issues in greater detail and, more importantly, in the 'mother ' languages.
