ACARE centers around the globe

In December 2019, HAE International together with GA2LEN – a non-profit European based organization of leading clinical and research facilities in the field of allergy and asthma – established GA2LEN/HAEi ACARE (Angioedema Centers of Reference and Excellence).

The joint venture with GA2LEN fulfills our longstanding goal of establishing a worldwide network of accredited angioedema care centers. Together with GA2LEN, we work on developing ACARE ensuring that it is an attractive partner for HAE treating physicians all over the world.

Establishing ACARE through cooperation with GA2LEN has given HAE International the certified accreditation program that we have been looking for as well as an inclusive solution where nobody will be left out as ACARE will be a worldwide network of specialized treatment centers.

Since the introduction in late 2019 the new global network of specialized treatment centers has grown at high speed. At this point, there are ACARE centers in Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Denmark, France, Georgia, Germany, India, Japan, Kuwait, Oman, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Slovenia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.

GA2LEN and HAE International have agreed that 32 requirements must be met for a hospital to become an accredited angioedema clinical care center. Among these requirements are multidisciplinary approach, structured and valid protocols of diagnosis and management, assessment of patient satisfaction and unmet needs, support of the ACARE network, a “Never give up” attitude, knowledge and use of current nomenclature and classification of angioedema, family screening, scientific and educational activities, and interaction with and support of HAE International and national angioedema patient organizations.
