THE XLH NETWORK AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

The XLH Network is an emerging patient support and information-presenting organisation, and as such, aims to facilitate mutually supportive information exchanges among those concerned with the XLH syndrome. Initiated in the summer of 1996, the organisation has grown to some 200 members in the intervening years, linking families affected with XLH as well as biomedical researchers, clinicians and carers concerned with this syndrome. Members typically subscribe to the free internet-based mailing list (F-HYPDRR), and share a valuable experience and best practise database.
