Alpha-1 Global

The challenges of obtaining the appropriate medical care vary by country. Many countries have already faced these hurdles and made progress in the areas of awareness, detection, health management, access to therapy and reimbursement. While countries have different governance structures and healthcare systems that demand a unique approach to advocacy, much can be learned from the experience of Alpha-1 communities that have faced these same challenges and won some hard fought battles.

During the 4th International Alpha-1 Patient Congress in Barcelona, Spain in April 2013, Alpha-1 leadership from 20 countries came together to share their experiences. Discussions regarding needs, desires, successes and failures produced a united resolve to stay connected as a collaborative global patient community.

The Alpha-1 Foundation offered its leadership and resources to assist in building a communications platform for the global Alpha-1 community with the goal to connect Alpha-1 organizations and individuals to share ideas, strategies and tools on three main topics: awareness, detection, and access to care. The start-up program was originally referred to as the “Alpha-1 Global Initiative,” but its name was permanently changed to “Alpha-1 Global” on June 1st, 2014.

Alpha-1 Global seeks to:

  • Build cohesive communication between the various Alpha-1 associations and organizations.
  • Supply up-to-date information about research and the latest Alpha-1 developments around the world.
  • Provide access to valuable resources and educational materials in a variety of languages.
  • Conduct educational Alpha-1 seminars online.
  • Encourage you to actively participate in the online discussion platform, by contributing your knowledge, questions, experiences and ideas.
