On the 27th of October, EFA EU Policy and Membership Officer Jelena Malinina attended the conference on multimorbidity organised by the European Commission (EC).

The conference highlighted the current problems of European health systems and defined main elements to build a common framework on multimorbidity. The EC declared its willingness to further work on support and facilitation of the implementation of necessary interventions at both national and regional levels. EFA welcomes this and wishes to be active part of this, contributing on allergy, asthma and COPD.

We would also like to thank EFA Members Asthma UK ( and the Asthma Society of Ireland ( for the providing multimorbidity patient’s testimonies for the conference.  You can read their stories here
