What APS Support UK does
Our mission is to achieve earlier diagnosis and offer support to anyone affected by antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) through research, education and awareness.
APS is a significantly under-recognised and under-diagnosed condition, so APS Support UK is determined to raise the profile of APS wherever possible.
We aim to achieve our mission through these core objectives:
- funding research into APS
- raising awareness of APS in the medical community
- offering information and understanding to anyone affected by APS
APS is estimated to affect around 1 in 2000 of the population and is a relatively rare autoimmune disorder; this means that a lot of research still needs to be carried out so we can learn more about the causes, effects and treatments for the condition.
APS Support UK is a small charity that punches 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.
Who we are
APS Support UK is comprised of patrons, trustees, medical advisors and the management team.
We provide a series of free fact sheets on a wide subjects related to antiphospholipid syndrome.
