Founded in 1990, the Association, which now has more than 2,000 members, is represented in all French regions by 17 Regional Delegates and managed by a Board of 12 Directors, all volunteers.
Among the different objectives of CMT-France, the main mission is to inform people affected by CMTs and related neuropathies, thanks to its Medical Council of French physicians, the CMT-France Magazine, the meetings organized in each region and the Annual National Congress.
The Association is in close contact with researchers interested in studying and finding therapies to cure CMTs.
The Association is also member of EURORDIS (Rare Diseases Europe) and AMR (the French Rare Diseases Alliance), partners of national and European projects involving researchers’ consortium.
CMT-France is willing to improve the information on CMTs and associated neuropathies by way of international enrichment of its network.
