Creation of the New Aquitaine Endometriosis Association (AFENA)

Today, April 30, 2021, we created the Association Filière Endometriose Nouvelle Aquitaine (AFENA) which brings together all the actors, professionals and establishments, who work for the management of endometriosis in our great region. .

Mr. Olivier Veran, the Minister of Health, did us the honor of opening the general assembly for the creation of AFENA. We have the full support of Mr. Benoît Elleboode, the Director of ARS Nouvelle Aquitaine, which hosts our head office. The AFENA office is made up of 13 members who represent professionals from public and private establishments, and city cabins (doctors, midwives and paramedical professionals), directors of public and private establishments, and patient associations. .

Our desire is to create a regional sector model, where each actor accomplishes his specific mission, with a common desire to improve the management of endometriosis in our greater region . The first president of AFENA is Pr Claude Hocké of the CHU of Bordeaux. The next general meeting is scheduled for September 17, 2021 in Bordeaux.

Dear colleagues from Nouvelle Aquitaine, join us and take your place in AFENA!
