ON BEHALF OF PATIENTS AND THEIR ASSOCIATIONS

  • Providing information on genetic diseases and on the progress of scientific research
  • Providing patients with information on the centres and specialists they should turn to
  • Teaming up with patients’ associations to foster research into cures for genetic diseases
  • Fostering contacts and exchanges of ideas among people who share similar problems

The “Filo Diretto” (hotline) is a dynamic system by means of which sufferers from genetic diseases can meet up, learn, exchange information and contribute to scientific research into cures for these diseases

Over a period of two decades, Telethon has funded more than 2200 research projects, and the work of more than 1400 researchers. If a patient was born with a genetic disease, the story mustn’t end there!
