A tri-national network diagnosing and improving quality of life of patients with rare diseases

RARENET is a French-German-Swiss cross-border cooperative project. His first objective is to improve the management and health of patients with complex rare diseases. Bringing together reference centres for rare diseases, universities, research centres, and patient support groups, RARENET offers a platform for the education and interaction by directly linking clinical treatment to the needs of patients. It provides resources such as patient information sheets, seminars, and training sessions for a greater level of information for health professionals and the general public.
