In order to achieve its missions, AFM-Téléthon relies on an alliance of competencies: the professionals who work for the association, thousands of volunteers who take part in the fight but also the patients and their families, who pilot the whole strategy.
Facilitators, legal experts, scientists, doctors... Thanks to the Telethon, AFM-Téléthon employs more than 500 professionals. Hence, the association moves faster and gets closer to treatments for the patients. The association has also created research centers that employ experts in biotherapies. Volunteers are also part of this very organized system.
AFM-Téléthon is a patients’ association. Patients and their families have a central role in the system. Families are very often asked about their needs and, most importantly, they design the solutions together with professionals.
