ACARE – Angioedema Centers of Reference and Excellence
The GA2LEN | HAEi ACARE network is a joint initiative by GA²LEN, the Global Allergy and Asthma European Network, and HAEi, the global umbrella organization for the world’s hereditary angioedema patient groups.
The ACARE program is a joint initiative by GA²LEN and HAE International (HAEi) for developing and accrediting an interactive network of centers of reference and excellence in angioedema.

promote the awareness of angioedema by advocacy activities.
broaden access to modern HAE medicines in countries where they are available
make concerted and systematic efforts to bring modern medicines to countries where there are none
