The situation of patients with rare diseases from Ukraine who fled the war (2022)
The report from our survey research among about 30 Ukrainian patients and patient’s caregivers whom we helped and who are currently residing in Poland and other European countries about their current situation, unique perspectives, access to treatment and needs. The results of this research allowed us to understand their situation even better and adapt our humanitarian activities to their needs.

Plasma – life depends on it (2021)
The report on plasma donations and the use of plasma derivatives in Poland. It presents the current situation in Poland: we discuss the Polish system of plasma collection compared to neighboring countries (Czech Republic, Hungary), we indicate groups of patients for whom PDMPs treatment is crucial and needs to be reimbursed. We also show what the situation in Europe looks like, what the trends are for the coming years, and therefore what challenges Poland faces in order to be able to provide patients with life-saving treatments.

Educational materials for patients
Brochures for Ukrainian rare disease patients in Poland (2022)
We prepared three educational brochures for Ukrainian rare disease patients in Poland. The first one presents medical care system in Poland from the perspective of rare disease patients. The second is a Ukrainian-Polish medical dictionary with pronunciation for patients with primary immunodeficiencies. It contains over a hundred of the most important medical terms related to PID and often used in a doctor's office or medical records. The third brochure is about social benefits for rare disease patients or their caregivers who are refugees in Poland.
