on rare bone diseases

Welcome to our website


ERN BOND is one of the 24 existing European Reference Networks (ERNs). In particular, ERN BOND aims to improve access to high-quality healthcare for patients suffering from rare bone diseases.


ERN BOND aims to implement measures that facilitate multidisciplinary, holistic and patient-centred care provision for people living with rare bone disorders, ensuring realisation of their fundamental human rights.


The ambition of ERN BOND is to bring rapid interchange of information, skills and practice to shorten time to diagnosis and treatment, supporting patients affected by rare bone diseases and their families.
