Every two years, an International Patient Day is held in conjunction with the Porphyrins and Porphyrias Congress, which brings together porphyria experts and researchers from around the World. The Patient Day, in turn, brings together patients and patient organisations from around the world. We are able to announce that the next International Patient Day is now scheduled. It will be held in the beautiful city of Bordeaux on the west coast of France, on Sunday, 25th June 2017. Further details will follow as soon as we have them.
