Dear colleagues,


Since the shocking Russian invasion of Ukraine, we have been working to find ways to support the people of Ukraine who have been affected by this terrible situation. This dedicated section of the ESPE website has been created to provide updates on the actions that have been taken and provide any useful information for professionals and affected patients and their parents.

Any enquiries and relevant information relating to the situation in Ukraine which could be of interest should be sent to and will be passed on to the relevant people.                                                                  

Please do consider donating to humanitarian organisations such as the Red Cross of Ukraine and UNICEF Ukraine, two examples of humanitarian support funds.

You can also find information here from Endo-ERN on their actions and a list with European healthcare centres for rare endocrine disorders to ensure that every possible patient or parent can find the nearest healthcare professional for treatment.

We very much hope for a rapid resolution of the conflict which is hurting so many people. Our thoughts are with all those affected by this terrible situation.
