Challenge

No private nor public hospital in Mexico provides the specialized care needed by our patients, a care based of a multidisciplinary treatment. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is not considered a rare disease in Mexico and therefore there are no treatments for it. Most of the families have a low income which does not allow them to cover their children's medical expenses

Solution

Enlace Distrofia Muscular Duchenne Becker AC, a non-profit organization, has been the only organization in Northern Mexico since 2000, tending to the particular needs of Duchenne and Becker patients through our unique model of comprehensive and specialized care based on the methodology of Parent Project MD, USA.

Long-Term Impact

A coordinated interdisciplinary care approach will have positive long term outcome on the health, quality of life and life expectancy of our patients fulfilling our mayor goal to have Duchenne individuals included in society and living as normal and productive a life as possible.
