About the project

The aim of the project output is to unite patient organisations and patients under an umbrella patient organisation, to strengthen the role of patients and the position of patient organisations in the healthcare system so that the umbrella organisation has a representative membership base to represent the interests of people with diabetes. An umbrella patient organisation is established on the initiative of the patient organisations, which fulfil the definition of a patient organisation – in particular the condition of leadership or majority participation in the leadership and management of the organisation by patients themselves. Transparency, legitimacy, democracy, representativeness and accountability are the basic principles of APD organisation and action.
