A world where anyone living with EB has support from a DEBRA group to access clinical and social care.

Develop and support our international network of DEBRA groups.
Develop and promote best practices for EB care and increase professional
knowledge of the condition.
Coordinate international research efforts to better understand EB, to find effective treatments, and to develop cures for all types of EB.
Work closely with industry and institutions that are developing and commercialising symptom relief
treatments and cures.
