Advocacy for Impact Grants

A Global Competitive Grants Program for Patient Advocacy Groups

People with rare diseases face unique challenges due to the complexity of their conditions, and we recognize that unique challenges call for creative solutions. At our core, we value and understand how exploring and developing new ideas have the potential to create high-impact initiatives that are a catalyst for change. Therefore, we want to give patient advocacy groups the resources and space to bring new projects and ideas to fruition. Alnylam recognizes that, as a global program, impactful ideas will look different to diverse communities and geographies, so we encourage patient advocacy groups from around the world to apply with projects targeted to specifically meet the unique or special needs of their own communities.

Applications will be accepted between October 29 and December 10, 2018.
