Constitution and Legal Status

The network was originally founded in 2013 by representatives of MPN patient groups from the Netherlands, Spain, and the UK.

The objective is to create a global network of MPN patient groups and new members are always welcome – please see the members page.

The organisation is constituted as an independent steering committee within a parent organisation, the Leukaemia Patent Advocates Foundation, registered as a non-profit organisation in Switzerland.

The constitution is available on request. Please email info@mpn-advocates.net
