The DEBRA International Roundtable of Companies (DIRC) is DEBRA International’s primary means of engaging and building long-term partnerships with companies that have an impact on the lives of people with EB.


By joining the DIRC, companies support the global mission of DEBRA International and build a relationship wherein DEBRA International learns from corporate partners and vice-versa by participating in interactive meetings. In a non-competitive environment, participants are able to address key issues at a strategic level.

There are three levels of DIRC membership, ranging from €20,000 to €50,000 enabling two to four participants at each meeting. ​Companies joining the DIRC sign a code of conduct, make an unrestricted annual financial contribution to DEBRA International, and in turn benefit from the following:

  • Exchange of views with the EB patient community at the international level

  • Exchange of views with other companies on neutral ground

  • Participation in two annual meetings on issues of common interest, suggested by both patients and companies

  • Insight into real patients’ needs and challenges globally

  • Open discussions to help to avoid overlap in parallel and similar initiatives

  • Attendance and brief speaking opportunity at DEBRA International side event to annual EB Congress (or other EB/dermatology-related event)

  • Acknowledgment on the DEBRA International website and in our annual report
