Social Policy Action Group

Following the end of the mandate of the Social Policy Advisory Group (2015-2018), EURORDIS launched the Social Policy Action Group in April 2019. The EURORDIS Social Policy Action Group (SPAG) is an action group of volunteer patient advocates who disseminate and contribute to the positions of EURORDIS and its members, advocating for holistic and integrated care for people living with a rare disease and their families.
