What APS Support UK does
Our mission is to save and improve the lives of patients with antiphospholipid syndrome by achieving earlier diagnosis and the best possible treatment. We do this by:
- informing doctors and healthcare professionals about antiphospholipid syndrome
- raising awareness of APS in the general public and media
- offering support and understanding to anyone affected by the condition
- raising funds to provide support, education and research
Although APS is now estimated to affect around 1 in 100 of the population, because it isl relatively new in medical terms, much research still needs to be carried out so we can learn more about the causes, effects and treatments for the condition; one thing we do know is that early diagnosis of APS is crucial for patients.
APS Support UK is a small charity that punches well above its weight and we have achieved a lot so far, however we need your help to be able to continue awareness campaigns and research so that people do not suffer unnecessarily. We do not receive any government funding and rely almost entirely on voluntary donations and legacies to fund our work.
