CML Advocates Network (CMLAN)

CML Advocates Network (CMLAN) is an international organization that connects 128 patient organizations, across the globe in 93 countries. Initially founded by four CML patient leaders from Germany, Israel, the Czech Republic and the UK, it is led by a Steering Committee comprised of nine patient advocates representing all six world regions.

In 2005, at the 4th International “New Horizons in Cancer” conference for CML and GIST patient advocacy groups in Dublin, the idea for the CML Advocates Network was first discussed. The “New Horizons” conferences, initiated in 2002, have evolved into an international networking event and a platform for improving patient care and exchanging best practices.
