Research is vital to identify improved treatments, deliver better quality of life and increase understanding of ROHHAD. It is imperative that research is done if we stand any chance of saving the lives of the children diagnosed. You can Help the children by making a donation today and help us to raise awareness.
The ROHHAD Association is a global charity and ROHHAD affects children all around the world. Therefore we are very happy to consider funding applications for research into ROHHAD from anywhere in the world.
There are Endocrine consultants in Scotland and England within the UK who are very interested in beginning research into ROHHAD. They are now working collaboratively with one another to prepare research proposals. There are also Doctors in the USA who are currently undertaking some research into ROHHAD.
At the charity we will continue to work incredibly hard to raise awareness and the funds required so that we can support and fund research within the UK and Internationally. Once we begin to allocate ROHHAD Research Grants we will update our supporters regularly via our website on how that research is progressing.
