The association ‘ Around BPAN ‘ was created on July 16th 2018. It’s open to everyone. It’s an association of families and carers.

While there is still much work to be done, we are proud to be a part of a network of collaborative partners who understand the importance of global participation in patient-centered initiatives and realize how critically important it is to place the patient front and center.

The Association is in a race against time.

NBIA Suisse – the Swiss patient advocacy association

We are a non-profit organization that supports the scientific research aiming at finding a cure for patients suffering from neururdegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA).

Our team at NBIA Suisse raises public awareness about this disease, supports efforts to better understand and diagnose the illness, and, finally, find innovative therapeutics for these young patients. To achieve our goals, we provide support and information to patients, families, clinicians, researchers. Further, we evaluate, initiate and selectively fund research activities in collaboration with academic centers, while we remain open to join efforts with industry partners across all subforms of NBIA disorders.

Please check our NBIA Suisse news page for ongoing and past activities.
