By Lauren Amphlett

The National Aspergillosis CARES Team are excited to announce its membership in European Lung Foundation (ELF) Patient Organisation Network. This collaboration marks a milestone in the team’s commitment to enhancing the lives of individuals affected by aspergillosis.

Founded in 2000 and working in partnership with the European Respiratory Society (ERS), ELF is a patient-led organisation that works internationally to bring patients and the public together with healthcare professionals to improve lung health and advance diagnosis, treatment, and care.

The ELF Patient Organisation Network is a hub for respiratory patient organisations throughout Europe, fostering knowledge exchange, collaboration, and advocacy initiatives to improve respiratory health and well-being across the continent. Membership of the network provides the CARES Team with access to invaluable resources, expertise, and opportunities to positively impact the lives of those living with aspergillosis.

As an active participant in this network, the NAC CARES Team will contribute expertise, raise awareness at both national and European levels, and help drive positive change. In addition to knowledge sharing and advocacy, the ELF Patient Organisation Network offers opportunities for networking and collaboration. By connecting with like-minded organisations, the team can establish partnerships, share experiences, and collaborate on joint initiatives to create a more supportive environment for individuals living with aspergillosis in Europe.
