Advocacy (speaking in favor of a cause, idea, or policy) helps build awareness and support for ITP and other platelet disorders. Everyone interested in having more people know about ITP, having greater access to treatment, and getting more funding ITP and related diseases can help.
Changing public policy, having national and state governments enact laws and fund directions that benefit our cause, can take much time and effort. PDSA has been working with like-minded organizations and related government agencies for years to bring awareness and enact changes. Our work continues and grows.
You can help by attending meetings, writing letters, signing petitions, and attending marches, rallies and political fundraisers. You can educate yourself through seminars and symposia and tell your story to reporters and other media. You can participate in surveys and registries to help researchers gather data to support your position.
Every call, every letter, every meeting can help our advocacy efforts.
