Think Tank for 
 Rare Diseases

What are the needs in the field of rare diseases? What can be done quickly to improve care and research? Whose support needs to be secured to get new initiatives off the ground? The Eva Luise and Horst Köhler Foundation Think Tank discusses and develops project ideas and initiates their implementation so that patients with rare diseases can look forward to a better future.

The cross-institutional Think Tank drives agenda setting in the field of rare diseases in order to gain attention for relevant topics in the political context. The well-being of patients is the guiding principle for all discussions and recommendations for action. The informal panel of the Eva Luise and Horst Köhler Foundation works complementary to existing institutional structures such as the National Action Alliance for People with Rare Diseases (NAMSE). All participants act on an equal footing and contribute their expertise to the think tank free of charge. The members of the panel commit themselves not to allow any economic interests to enter into the trusting exchange. The operating costs are borne by the industrial partners participating in the think tank.
