Press release:

Leading parties join forces and want to achieve results faster

Alliance wants to make a real impact in the fight against Parkinson’s

Parkinson’s is the fastest growing brain disease in the world! The personal and social impact of this progressive disease is not only unprecedented, it is also unknown to many. To change this, the most prominent parties in the Netherlands when it comes to Parkinson’s disease and Parkinsonisms have joined forces and founded the Parkinson’s Alliance in the Netherlands.

Achieve faster results together against the disease. That is the goal of the alliance that will launch on April 11, World Parkinson’s Day, with a special television broadcast on ParkinsonTV.

Chairman Jan van Zijl: “By establishing the Parkinson’s Alliance, we will join forces and as professionals we will be able to work even smarter together. In this way we know how to make maximum use of each other’s qualities and we strengthen each other in finding groundbreaking solutions.

The Parkinson’s Alliance was founded by:

  • ParkinsonNet (a national network with more than 3,400 care providers specialized in guiding people with Parkinson ’s therapists)
  • Parkinson’s Association (for people with Parkinson’s, Parkinsonisms and their environment)
  • ParkinsonNL (the new fund for research and information) 
  • The platform of researchers working in the Netherlands with Parkinson’s

The organizations continue to work individually on their goals, but see intensive cooperation as the ideal opportunity to accelerate.

Van Zijl: “To create a world without Parkinson’s and until then to maintain the quality of life of people with Parkinson’s and their environment. That is what we are already working on day and night with many parties. We need each other and we cordially invite parties that would like to play a role in this. ”
