The 2016 HAE Global Conference will take place 19 – 22 May 2016 in Madrid, Spain.

The theme for the international gathering is “Creative Advocacy for Expanding Access to Therapy.”

Attendees at the 2016 HAE Global Conference can expect a wide variety of important information and learning opportunities that include HAE fundamentals, the most recent clinical advances and consensus treatment recommendations, and advocacy strategies/ techniques for gaining or broadening access to HAE medicines. There will be a separate track for young patients that will enable peer group interaction and sharing of insights on how to cope with HAE. Health care professionals will also be an integral part of the conference. HAEi will offer an educational and networking session for nurses specializing in HAE; and HAE physician/researchers from throughout the globe will gather to present abstracts and discuss future research opportunities.
