Who we are
Welcome to HAE International
HAE International (HAEi) is a global non-profit network of patient associations dedicated to improving the lives of people with HAE.
We are a group of compassionate HAE patients and care givers who make it our life’s work to raise awareness of hereditary angioedema (HAE), improve time to diagnosis, and fiercely advocate for approval and reimbursement of lifesaving therapies to everyone suffering from HAE.
We provide our member organizations with specially designed tools and technical assistance that promote disease education and support activities addressing the unique needs of HAE patients and their families.
HAEi is company and product neutral and enthusiastically supports drug discovery research aimed at the next generation of HAE therapies. Our great success in supporting clinical trials has resulted in a variety of approved therapeutic options. We work closely with expert physicians to continuously encourage a tailored, patient-focused approach to the use of available therapeutic options.

The HAEi resources are here for you
Our organization is a global non-profit network of patient associations and we are dedicated to raising awareness of hereditary angioedema (HAE) around the world.
We strive to improve time to diagnosis and facilitate access to and reimbursement of life-saving HAE therapies, which will enable lifelong health for all patients – no matter where they live.
Prevalence of HAE is still unknown. However, we expect the global prevalence of HAE to be approximately 1 in 30,000, which means that around a quarter million people worldwide suffer from this rare and potentially life-threatening deficiency.
