ABDA Advocates for Policies Important to People Living with Behcet's Disease and with Rare Diseases
The American Behcet's Disease Association advocates for policies affecting the lives of patients and their families. Our efforts aim to affect change, actively work on proposals to protect and improve key policies at the local, state and federal levels and ultimately improve patient outcomes and quality of life. Addressing issues such as access to care, treatment innovations, research and healthcare policies, the voice of patients in policy and treatment development is of utmost importance. We encourage the community to reach out to elected officials through "call to action" initiatives.
As of June 15, 2021 nearly 311.9 million COVID-19 vaccine doses had been administered in the US, the CDC reported. The number of fully vaccinated Americans now totals more than 145.7 million, and more than 174.6 million have been given at least one dose.
"After many years of illness, my physician suspected a diagnosis of Behcet's Disease. Getting in touch with the American Behcet's Disease Association allowed me to connect with other patients and physicians with ample knowledge of BD and gave me hope. I'm no longer alone!" M. Kelly
