Inspire2Live is organizing congresses to bring together all the groups that support the well being of patients and their loved ones. This involves of course patients and also clinicians and researchers, industry and health insurances representatives and people from the government. In the cooperation they will benefit the patient in everything they do.
To educate everybody that plays his role in this field we organize congresses.
Sometimes bigger ones with more then hundred participants and sometimes more smaller symposia with 10 or 20 invited visitors. But always it will be inspiring and different. Not just listen to what others have to tell but listen, discuss and work. All in order to deliver. Deliver for patients and working towards our end goal: a better quality of life for the patient and her loved ones.
In health care it is often spoken about the asymmetry of the relationship between patients and citizens. Our patient advocates constantly and incessantly bring symmetry back to this relationship. At our congresses it is evident how equal participation from stakeholders and patients yield greater results for patients themselves and society as a whole. Look at our achievements up till now!

Inspire2Live works on a Discovery Network on ‘ Children and Sarcoma’. There is little attention for this difficult to treat cancer. Only a few children are diagnosed with a sarcoma and their survival is poor. Together with the best scientists and clinicians around the word and of course with the Princess Maxima Center for Pediatric Oncology we want to set up a Discovery Network and work towards solutions. The exact dat and location is not yet known but it will be an international setting in the second half of 2019.
Inspire2Live works on a Discovery Network ‘HIV/AIDS and cancer’. Now that the HIV virus sometimes is used to treat cancer patients, Inspire2Live took the initiative together with scientists from the IrsiCaixa – Institut de Recerca de la Sida, to work out a Discovery Network on this theme. How does it work when the HIV-virus attacks cancer cells? What is the working of inflammation in this process? And the influence of the metabolism? And of course: how can we set up new treatments for patients? In a Discovery Network setting we will find this out. The exact date is not yet known but it will be in the second half of 2019. The location is Barcelona.
Our next annual congress will take place from January 29 (from 4 pm), 30 and 31 (till 2.30 pm), 2020 in Amsterdam.
