The Urticaria Network is a group of people who share the aim, who share a common goal: To improve our understanding of urticaria by scientific research and to help patients with urticaria to manage their disease. The Urticaria Network also promotes and supports research on diseases other than urticaria, mainly other mast cell-driven conditions and we also help to improve the management of these diseases.
To this end we provide funding and support for research projects and activities. This includes but is not limited to projects that aim to identify the underlying causes and best treatment options for urticaria as well as advocacy and awareness activities. We also help physicians to improve their care of urticaria patients, for example by hosting educational events on recent findings of urticaria research or preceptorships and round tables to promote the exchange of knowledge and to increase the awareness of and confidence with treatment approaches of urticaria patients.
The Urticaria Network supports patient organizations and their work. The work of all Urticaria Network members for our network is pro bono.
We gladly accept all forms of assistance, from critique and proposed improvements to volunteer work (we are currently in dire need of press and organisational volunteers for our office in Mainz and in the areas of organisation, finances, fundraising and public relations for our Berlin office.) You can also support our work through monetary contributions or donations in kind (both tax deductible).
UNEV needs your support. We'd also be glad to talk to you personally about how you can help.
