DHPE supports the efforts of NIH, the Lupus Foundation of America and other health organizations striving to address lupus health disparities. As we implement the Lupus Education and Awareness for Patients, Professionals and Providers program or LEAP, DHPE understands the importance of increasing federal funding for the lupus health education, which is essential for
meeting the goals identified in this report.
  

New Report will Expedite Treatments and Cures in Lupus 

Today, the Action Plan for Lupus Research was released by the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This new report reflects the current needs and gaps in lupus research for helping to improve the basic understanding of lupus and to identify targets for advancing lupus drug development.

Increased support for lupus research is vital to improve the quality of life for all people affected by the disease.We worked with the Congressional Lupus Caucus, with support from our network of lupus activists, to request an update to a 2007 NIH report.

The result is the new Action Plan for Lupus Research.

The plan will guide the lupus community in its efforts to reduce the time to diagnosis, to develop programs and services that will benefit people with lupus, their caregivers and health care providers, and to develop new treatments and clinical trial models.
