    Goals / Remit

    The objectives of FH Europe are to actively work to secure early identification and diagnosis of Familial Hyperlipidemias, including FH, HoFH, elevated Lp(a) and FCS to prevent early cardiovascular disease and other health consequences.

    Our aims as a patient association are to:
    Share information and best practice across Europe
    Work with experts to focus on themes and topics of interest to the patients and families we represent
    Support development of newer or smaller patient groups and individuals wanting to start a patient group
    Influence health policies
    Conduct research

    Main EU files targeted

    We are interested in following European Union health policy relating to cardiovascular disease and lipid disorders,in particular Familial Hypercholesterolaemia (both heterozygous and homozygous) and related lipid conditions such as LP(a) and FCS. This falls within the European Union policy area of non-communicable diseases.

    We have responded to policy consultation documents related to Cardiovascular Diseases.
