"The aHUS Alliance invites all stakeholders to join together to promote visibility and to highlight insights and issues specific to aHUS.  Information and resources for aHUS Awareness Day will be available online at

There are many common concerns that affect aHUS patients regardless of nation, culture, or language such as:  the need for quick and accurate diagnosis, access to treatment and healthcare options, shared data and information among global aHUS researchers, increased physician education, and advancement in ultra-orphan drug therapies.

Along with patients and carers sharing personal stories about meeting the challenges of aHUS, the aHUS Alliance encourages medical and research teams, pharma, healthcare professionals, geneticists and policy makers to share how they or their organisation's innovations are 'Rising above aHUS' to improve patient outcomes."
