All 24 ERNs united to help Ukrainian people with rare diseases
All 24 European Reference Networks (ERNs) launch a dedicated website and social media campaign to collect information to help health professionals to find support for Ukrainian patients with rare diseases: diagnosis, treatment, advice.

Our health care providers (HCP), particularly those located in the countries currently receiving large numbers of refugees (Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania) are ready to help Ukranian patients with rare / very rare diseases, for specific diagnostic procedures and treatment. Those centers work in close cooperation with the ERNs they belong to.

From TransplantChild, we made an effort to collect the information about the availability and means to receive and take care of some of the paediatric patients from the different centres of the ERN. If your centre has the means to take care of some of these patients, we would appreciate it if you could contact us at

New TransplantChild publication
Six centres of the ERN TransplantChild participated in this study which aims to examine the prevalence of autoantibodies (AAB) after paediatric liver transplantation, and to determine their relation with the outcome. Previous studies regarding the prevalence of AAB after paediatric liver transplantation show inconsistent results and while some of them found an association between AAB and autoimmune liver disease, others were not able to draw such connection. The aim of this multi-centre  study is to expand current knowledge on the prevalence, associated factors, and clinical impact of AAB after paediatric liver transplantation.
From the TransplantChild coordination team we wold like to congratulate the researchrs from Hannover Medical School (Hannover, Germany), Azienda Ospedaliera Papa Giovanni XXIII (Bergamo, Italy), Hospital Necker Enfants-Malades (Paris, France), The Children’s Memorial Health Institute (Warsaw, Poland), Institute of Clinical Medicine (Vilnius, Lithuania) and IRCCS Pediatric Hospital Bambino Gesù (Rome, Italy) for their publication and thank them for their contribution.

Professionals can further their knowledge applying for an exchange with a centre that can provide the necessary knowledge, expertise or facilities. Over 1000 "Travel packages" of 5 working days are available to healthcare professionals who wish to pursue a short term training stay.
In 2021 and 2022, three different rounds of exchanges will take place between professionals of Healthcare Providers that are members or affiliated partners of an ERN. A NEWSLETTER with more information about the programme has been issued. Don't miss this opportunity!

EJP RD Events
The European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases (EJP RD) brings over 130 institutions to create a comprehensive, sustainable ecosystem allowing a virtuous circle between research, care and medical innovation. The EJP RD has two major objectives:
  1. To improve the integration, the efficacy, the production and the social impact of research on RD through the development, demonstration and promotion of Europe/world-wide sharing of research and clinical data, materials, processes, knowledge and know-how
  2. To implement and further develop an efficient model of financial support for all types of research on RD (fundamental, clinical, epidemiological, social, economic, health service) coupled with accelerated exploitation of research results for benefit of patients.
The EJP-RD organises a series of events in order to promote research on Rare Diseases, such as certified workshops or funding opportunities. Do not miss your chance to participate in these events and get involved with the EJP RD.
