At the start of our association, the fear of stigmatization, lack of awareness, and social and economic problems had prevented patients from coming forward and registering, but due to our effort in raising awareness the association has been able to register several new patients as members. To register, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Our association brings members together to share their experience with each other. Our members has express their appreciation for having a platform to share their experience of living with the disease with each other.
