The reference portal for information on rare diseases and orphan drugs

Orphanet is the reference portal for information on rare diseases and orphan drugs, for all audiences. Orphanet’s aim is to help improve the diagnosis, care and treatment of patients with rare diseases.

As official member of this Organization for European Rare Diseases, ENERCA is committed to participate and/or being represented in ORPHANET organization during its bi-annual meetings. This was necessary for the efficient coordination and follow-up of all the collaborative tasks.

As an example of these tasks, ENERCA was directly involved in the preparation of the new Project for International Classification of Rare Diseases (IDC) - 11 in tight collaboration with ORPHANET and the World Health Organization (WHO).

On the other hand, the ENERCA database of experts and partners is shared with Orphanet in order to make it more accessible. All the rare anaemias described on the ENERCA website are properly identified with the official codes used by Orphanet.
