IPOPI's Moroccan NMO, Hajar, has won the IPOPI WPIW Collaborative grant and is now very busy organising a multi-stakeholder local awareness-raising campaign!
Hajar’s campaign will feature a PID Spring school event focusing on Gene Therapy, a Family Day, a fundraising Gala Dinner, a Blood collection day programme focusing on IVIG supply, and a meeting with the Moroccan Health Minister. All these events will be supported and promoted through a local media campaign and involve a range of stakeholders to raise awareness. Check back here after the 2013 campaign for an update.
This special grant was made available to award the best NMO proposal involving patients but also other stakeholders such as doctors, nurses, politicians, etc. IPOPI received numerous great applications, besides Morocco including Argentina, Brazil, Iceland, India, Portugal and Spain which made the final decision very difficult to our Board Members. We're delighted that IPOPI is so committed to continuing to support the national implementation of World PI Week now and in the future.
