Influenza, or the flu, is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses (types A, B, and C). It presents with sudden symptoms like fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, and fatigue. Spread through respiratory droplets, the flu can lead to complications such as pneumonia. Annual vaccinations and good hygiene practices are key in prevention and management. The flu season typically occurs during colder months.
Patients are the experts in their condition and advocacy groups provide a platform for patient voices. Working directly with these communities is the key to pushing research forward in an inclusive way.
We’ve committed to having 500,000 conversations in the next three years, to equip ourselves and our Pharma partners with the insights needed to increase predictability.
The ever-growing investment in advocacy doesn’t appear to be slowing down, and research is certainly seeing the benefits. Which at the end of the day, means better patient care and more options for patients.
We’re ready to keep forming links between our Advocacy friends and Pharma partners, so these fruitful relationships continue to evolve beyond the study-to-study view.
