Lupus Initiative is a voluntary organization formed for fostering interaction and disseminating information amongst patients with lupus, their family, and health care providers or doctors caring for such patients.
It was always a long felt need for a society where this kind of interaction is possible.
Lupus Initiative is a voluntary non-profitable, non-Governmental organization formed with the idea of providing support to patients suffering from Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (Lupus). This support group envisages help in the form of :
1) Providing information about the condition to patients, family members and their care givers (through publishing leaflets, education materials and updated information through the website)
2) To increase awareness about the disease in the society and to remove any stigma through campaigning.
3) To organize seminars & meeting for patients, their friends/family members and treating doctors.
Lupus Initiative dreams of providing support for comprehensive affordable/aided medical management of lupus patients in future. The group is also interested to be involved in research activities related to lupus or to support such activities.
The motto of the society is ‘TO CREATE A COMMON PLATFORM FOR PATIENTS AND THEIR CAREGIVERS’.
