Today Queen Letizia of Spain received two audiences at the Royal Palace of Zarzuela in Madrid. Earlier in the day, she received a representation of the two expert committees that advise the Spanish Federation of Rare Diseases.
To assist in the orientation of clinical consultations the “Spanish Federation of Rare Diseases” has the collaboration of a scientific advisory committee that was established on March 2, 2012. The main objective of this Committee is to bring together professionals in the field of rare diseases to make available to families and patients as much knowledge and advice as possible.
The ERDF Advisory Committee is composed of personalities from different areas of healthcare, and the legal field, all of the renowned prestige in the main areas of interest for the “Spanish Federation of Rare Diseases”.
This Committee meets face-to-face every year in the framework of the World Day. In addition, thanks to new technologies the Committee maintains a fluid communication for the rest of the year, providing proposals to stop the serious situations of injustice that people with rare diseases experience.
Later in the day, Queen received an audience from a representation of the “State Network of Mental Health Women Spain” and was informed of the women mental health problems, as well as the work that this group has done since October 2017.
The Mental Health Spain Confederation is a non-profit and social interest entity that emerged in 1983. Currently, it integrates 19 regional federations and uni-provincial associations, which group more than 300 associations and total more than 47,000 members and partners throughout the state’s territory.
Since June 2015 FEAFES has been renamed MENTAL HEALTH SPAIN Confederation, offering society a positive vision, which is closer to the concept of “mental health” and away from “mental illness. Its mission is to improve the adoption of all measures that contribute to improving the quality of life of people with mental disorders and their families, defend their rights and represent the associative movement created around mental health.
