IPOPI is pleased to announce the addition of two new National Member Organisations (NMOs) to join its fast-growing global community. Following the Latin American Patients Meeting in São Paulo, El Salvador and Ecuador have successfully applied for associate membership of IPOPI. They are already making plans for next steps and campaigns for the year 2018 and closely working with other IPOPI NMOs in Latin America.
Fundación Escudo de Amor in El Salvador and Fundación Ecuatoriana de Pacientes con Inmunodeficiencia Primaria (FEPIP) in Ecuador will be eligible to apply for full membership in the next general assembly in 2018. IPOPI Board of Directors and staff wish to extend a warm welcome to the new patient organisations and are looking forward to collaborating closely with them in the future.
