The Behçet's Syndrome Society, formed in 1983, aims to provide a contact and support system for sufferers and their families, to provide financial aid in cases of hardship caused by the syndrome, to encourage networking amongst the medical profession, and to promote research.
Membership is open to all for a small annual subscription. Subscription is waived in cases of hardship. The Society publishes leaflets and newsletters together with fact-sheets for medical professionals.
Sufferers who wish to contact each other are put in touch. The Society also advises members or their medical advisers on their nearest known centre of expertise for Behçet's syndrome, if required. In some cases the Society is able to make one-off grants where no other agency can help (a covering letter from a doctor, social worker or other appropriate referee is required in these cases).
