Finding policies, laws and regulatory information: Health and Disease Advocacy Organizations

Finding Quality Health Information on the Internet

Health Care Advocacy organizations

So many disease-specific organizations exist for the purposes of advocacy and education that they cannot all be listed.  

Below are just a few that might be helpful.  Each organization might have policy, patient education, advocacy and standards of care information related to their specific disease on their websites.    

Keep in mind: One helpful tip for finding good information on the web is to look for ".org" rather than ".com" after the name when searching for specific disease information on the internet.  A ".com" may not present bad information, however, by nature, is a commercial enterprise with an interest in selling a product, drug or other service.
